Local snowboarders show their stuff on the stair rail (slideshow)


Local snowboarders stole the show at the Parklife Invitational Rail Jam in downtown Queenstown last Friday.

Queenstown’s Nick Hyne and Joseph Mackenzie were jointly named best male boarder for their outstanding tricks. Stefi Luxton from Wanaka claimed the top female boarder spot.

American freestyler Gus Kenworthy won best male skier, while The Remarkables ski instructor Kate Kuncova took out best female skier.

The Remarkables ski area manager Ross Lawrence says the eighth annual event was another success, with locals again proving their awesome talent.

Punters packed Earnslaw Park to watch thirty star boarders and skiers showcase their moves on a purpose-built stair feature.
