Anderson wins third straight New Zealand Open

Jamie Anderson knows how to get off to a flying start to her snowboard season.

For the third straight year the South Lake Tahoe rider won the New Zealand Open women’s slopestyle event, besting the field by nearly five points earlier this month.

“I can’t believe it,” Anderson said. “I love the Burton Opens and winning this event three times in a row is amazing, so I’m ecstatic and so stoked to start of the year with a good result.”

Anderson executed a frontside 180, switch backside 180 mute, backside 180 mute, backside 360 mute and a boardslide to tailpress during her winning run of 79.20. New Zealand’s Shelly Gotlieb was second with 74.56.

Christian Haller of Switzerland won the men’s slopestyle.
