The stifling heat and sweaty office chair backs we're experiencing right now can only mean one thing - the shred season in the southern hemisphere is now on. From huge backcountry lines in Chile and Argentina to three months of soft park laps in Australia and New Zealand, you're either there or square.

Talking of NZ, WL favourite Christy Prior just put out this opening day edit from The Remarkables, one of the South Islands premier resorts right next to Queenstown. Blizzarding conditions or not, Kiwis are always keen to make the most of the relatively short season so the crew got stuck in good and proper.

The theme of the day seems to have been mirroring tricks in both switch and regs - pretty much everyone here is throwing down both ways. As well as Christy, Adam Strawbridge and Thubga Josayma but put down some first day shots through the snowstorm. Banger!
