Avalanche Highlight

The 8th Annual New Zealand Heli Challenge was recently held in Wanaka. The two-day Heli Challenge involves a “freestyle” day, while the other is reserved for “freeride” stylings. The highlights of the contest included a class-two avalanche that American skier Ted Davenport set off, and skied out of, on the first day, and a hairball line that snowboard-event winner American Travis Rice rode on day two. New Zealander Will Jackways was third in the men’s class. The challenge featured nearly 4 national and international extreme skiers and snowboarders.
