Queenstown snow stars make the national team


Ace Queenstown snow stars have nailed themselves a spot on the 2011 national freeski and snowboarding teams on Friday. 

Winter Olympian skier Mitchey Greig has retained her seat on the Kiwi freeski team alongside five Wanakarites, while local lads Matt Johnson, Harry Pettit and Matt Soundy made the development squad. 

Queenstown riders Nick Brown, Jake Koia and Nick Hyne were also named among the 14-strong New Zealand Snowboard Union national side.
