The North Face Big Mountain Finals at The Volkl NZ Freeski Open (now that’s a mouthful) saw a couple home country Kiwis take the top spots in the men’s and women’s divisons.  Geoff Small won his eighth title since 1996, while his countrywoman Janina Kuzma won her fifth straight title. 

The competition at New Zealand’s Remarkables ski area featured…  just watch the clip!  Small dedicated his win to his close friend Jonathan Morgan who died in an avalanche last Friday.  No doubt it was a bittersweet victory for Small.
