World # 1 boarder, Jamie Anderson set to touch down in Queenstown!

Billabong Slopestyle August 4th – 6th

Next month Queenstown welcomes world number 1 women’s snowboarder Jamie Anderson to the Billabong Slopestyle event.

This laid back Californian is a huge star on the global woman’s snowboard scene and a key representative of Billabong worldwide.

At the tender age of 16, Jamie won her first Gold medal at the Winter X Games in the slopestyle event, kicking Shaun White out of the position as youngest medallist in Winter X Games history. Now, age twenty, Anderson is the TTR World Women’s Champion. Plus she has picked up close to 20 worldwide competitions, with her eyes firmly set on the Winter Olympics in 2014.

A force to be reckoned with, this laid-back lady believes she’s living her dream. To win another title will add yet another notch to her already heavy belt. Jamie will be competing at the Billabong Slope Style at New Zealand’s Snowpark in Wanaka, from the 4-6 Aug. This annual competition showcases the best talent in the slopestyle field; with competition heating up due to the large number of international and local talent who are all aiming to take out the big titles.
