Jamie Anderson got her 2013-2014 season started on a high note with a slopestyle win at the second annual Burton ‘High Fives’ presented by MINI snowboarding competition. The event was hosted by Cadrona Alpine Resort in Wanaka, New Zealand.

Enni Rukajärvi took second place with 79.20 and Silje Norendal came in third with a score of 69.20.
“My run was pretty good, but a bit sketchy,” said Jamie. “I went with an easier run – you have to play it out moment by moment. I fell on my first run, but I was glad to land my second, especially in these conditions.”
Norwegian Stale Sandbech won the men’s competition.
