The Ski Season is just beginning in the Southern Hemisphere and with that comes the countdown to major events.

The North Face Freeski Open of New Zealand will last from August 28- September 3. The events will take place at either Snowpark NZ or The Remarkables. Below, you can find the schedule for the big event.
The competition is one of the first events of the season for both the AFP World Tour and the Freeride World Tour.
Some of the world’s top halfpipe, slopestyle, and big mountain skiers will make the treck down to New Zealand for some open competition.
