Winter Fest slopestyle showcase


A star-studded line-up of New Zealand’s best skiers and snowboarders have showed off their skills in the Quiksilver Slopestyle Invitational in Queenstown.

An all-star field, including Queenstowner Nick Hyne – who’s not long recovered from a broken foot – took to the terrain park at the Remarkables ski area for the Winter Festival event yesterday (Sunday).

The contenders pulled out some big tricks for the crowd on a course featuring jumps, straight and rainbow-shaped rails, boxes and platforms.

Milu Multhaup-Appleton walked away with the men’s snowboard title, while Christy Prior took out the women’s division. In the men’s ski event Tom McGaw took first position and Alexandra Nicole gained first place in the women’s ski class.
