The upcoming skiers and snowboard stars gathering in New Zealand!

Eight elite level skiers and snowboarders gathered in Wanaka (NZL) for a week to remember – the first JUNIOR World Heli Challenge tailored exclusively for 12-16 year olds at the top of their game.





It was a week of learning backcountry smarts, avalanche safety, terrain awareness and a bunch of other handy skills for upcoming pro athletes – like wrangling social media, on-camera interviews and working with sponsors.

The highlight of the week was a heli-accessed competition day in the Southern Alps high above Minaret Station where they put their skills and style to the test for the judges and the cameras.
