Turoa to host final stop for GoPro Junior Freeride Tour

Unmissable event for lovers of extreme snow sports

Mt Ruapehu will host New Zealand’s top under 18 ski and snowboard talent when they compete for the New Zealand Junior Freeride title in September.

Turoa Ski Area will host the third and final round in the GoPro Junior Freeride Tour, after entrants compete in the first round in August at The Remarkables, and round two at Mt Olympus in early September.

The GoPro Junior Freeride competition at Turoa will take place between 23-26 September, with one competition day and three contingency weather days. The athletes with the most points in each category after the completion of the three stop tour, will be crowned the Overall NZJFT champions.

The Tour was created in 2015 to provide New Zealand junior athletes with the opportunity to compete in professionally run freeride competitions.

Bryan Cleaver, Turoa Event Coordinator says “this is a world-class event for young athletes, and attracts some of the best upcoming skiers and riders from around the country.

“Turoa is very fortunate to host the Freeride Tour as it’s such a great opportunity to showcase our country’s athletes in Turoa’s freeriding terrain,” says Cleaver.

Registration is still open. For further information go to for event and registration details (registration is $75, excluding licensing fee).
