New Zealand Freeski Open

01. September 2014

During our second week in New Zealand the weather was still unbelievably good. Blue sky and sunshine during the whole time. We took a day off on monday and went sky diving. It was such an amazing feeling to fall towards the earth from 15000 feet with 200 kph! On tuesday and wednesday we did some filming in the perfect snowpark up at Cardrona. On thursday and friday the New Zealand Freeski Open was on. I liked the slopestyle course a lot, the rails on top were technical and the three jumps were in a perfect shape. With a solid run on thursday I was able to qualify for fridays finals. In the finals I did a switch right 900 safety grab to left double cork 1260 mute grab to switch left bio 1260 blunt grab combination on the jumps. In the end I landed on the 5th place. It was a great competition to start the new season. The atmosphere was really good and everyone had fun. Elias and I also finished our second video from New Zealand, make sure to watch it below. Now I am on my way to Jindabyne, Australia. Elias and I are gonna be there two weeks. In the first week we are gonna ski in the Snowpark at Perisher and in the second week we are taking part at the One Hit Wonder Big Air competition in Thredbo.
