Will Jackways started snowboarding at Cardrona in 1997 and has been riding professionally since 2003. He has featured in numerous magazines and films as well as placing in many international competitions. He is defending his overall title at this year’s World Heli Challenge.
Will grew up in Wanaka as the bare-footed kid at the skate park just as snowboarding was emerging. Today he is a local legend and one of the most respected snowboarders in the southern hemisphere. Painfully modest, in meeting him you would never get the sense of his snowboarding abilities. A backcountry and freeride mastermind, he takes to step downs and pillow lines like a duck to water.
Will won the 2012 World Heli Challenge for Men's Snowboard and the overall award which scored him a trip to Points North Heli in Alaska in early 2013.
