Winter Games New Zealand: Freeski Halfpipe

From the World of Freesports: “Competitors brought their A-game to the finals of the FIS Australia New Zealand Cup Freeski & Snowboard Halfpipe presented by Cardrona Alpine Resort at the QRC Winter Games NZ, fuelled by Forsyth Barr today. The judges had their work cut out for them all day long with competitors pushing their limits to earn their spot on the podium. Halfpipe judging criteria is based on trick variety, difficulty, and execution as well as the amplitude a competitor can gain above the wall of the 22ft high pipe. The skiers were the first to drop into superpipe with the 10 men and eight women each taking three runs and their top score deciding the final results.”
