New Zealand's Stef Zeestraten and Nick Hyne have finished first and second ahead of Gjermund Braaten from Norway in the men's Snowboard-Slopestyle at The Remarkables on day two of the New Zealand Winter Games

New Zealand's Shelly Gotlieb won the women's event from the New Zealand Open winner Jamie Anderson of the USA with Aimee Fuller of Great Britain third.

Six New Zealanders made it through to the final 12 and head judge Ola Sundequist says that reflects the depth of New Zealand's snowboarding talent.

The games continue with Sprint Cross Country at the Snow Farm, Snowboard Cross at Cardrona, and more curling at Naseby.
