In the first episode of the season the crew set out into the mountains surrounding Queenstown in pursuit of the goods early winter - and they scored!
They got copious amounts of powder at The Remarkables with Burton riders Ethan Cruise and Nick Brown. They then joined up with Winter Olympics Bronze medallist Zoi Sadowski-Synnott at Cardrona to see why she and her crew love early season in New Zealand so much.
