WANAKA, New Zealand (July 12, 2012) Burton Snowboards announced today that it’s bringing a new four-day invitational snowboarding event to New Zealand this summer called ‘Burton High Fives’, presented by MINI. The first annual High Fives event will combine the best aspects of individual and team competition, as 60 top snowboarders will compete in halfpipe and slopestyle, while also taking part in unique, off-snow team challenges like skeet shooting, knife throwing, jet boat trials and the MINI winter driving challenge.

The event will run from August 15 -18 and will take place at Snow Park NZ, near Wanaka. Taking the place of the former Burton New Zealand Open, the 2012 Burton High Fives is the first event in the Burton Global Event Series and is a 5star event on the TTR World Tour.
