Snow Park has opened the first halfpipe in the Southern Hemisphere this winter when they unveiled their new 22-foot, Olympic size haflpipe. Mountainwatch.com’s Pablo Azocar spent Friday the 16th of July shooting the pipe with the Snow Park Team who are some of NZ’s Olympic snowboarders.

It’s winter but it doesn’t feel like it, the last three weeks it’s been sunny here in NZ. Usually at this time of the year we are in between storms slashing powder, but this year it’s been a bit different. Thankfully the brand new 22 ft pipe at Snow Park is open from today to keep us entertained, quite the opposite from slashing powder in the backcountry, but this first session with the Snowpark Team plus guests was fun as.
