NZ Open Big Mountain Highlights


Competitors Brave Awful Conditions to Put on a Show

The New Zealand Open wrapped up last week.  Terrible conditions did not hold competitors back, as they competed for NZ’s most high profile competition at the Remarkables near Queenstown.  The event was won by American B Devine, who’s got a big mountain style that is uniquely his own.  He was followed by Austrian Fabio Sluder and Kiwi Charlie Lyons.  On the ladies side, Australians Hanna Fischer and Nat Segal took the top two spots, followed by Janina Kuzma.  Congratulations everyone.
