Mighty is stoked to be a part of the inaugural Burton High Fives.
This invite-only global snowboarding competition combines traditional halfpipe and slopestyle events with off-snow team challenges to create a fun summertime snowboarding event in New Zealand.
The Jam format of the snow events, combined with team challenges that are distinctly Kiwi in flavour, will bring 60 top riders together to Snow Park NZ for a truly unique four-day event.
As well as the traditional snow events, some unique events include the MINI Winter Driving Challenge, where each team will nominate one guy and one girl to drive on a closed winter driving course. Riders are aiming for the fastest time. There will also be additional team challenges in which each team must nominate one person to take part in the following activities -Knife throwing, Skeet shooting and Jet boat trails!
What an awesome event!
Taking the place of the former New Zealand Open, the 2012 Burton High Fives is the first event in the Burton Global Event Series and is a 5star event on the TTR World Tour.
If you’re around Wanaka this weekend, head to Snow Park NZ and check out the world class action. Our mighty crew will also be on site so be one of the first to get yourself some sweet promo gear!
