In 2014 the World Heli Challenge evolves to a fresh new format with two teams winning their way into an exciting head-to-head format and the added spice of a NZ$14,000 prize purse and NZ$18,000 in prizes!

In keeping with the World Heli Challenge tradition the focus remains on celebrating strong freeriding skills in the backcountry, a respect for the mountains and creating riveting stories and images.

The judging is no longer based purely on the technical scores of previous years however the judges will be looking for smooth and confident riding, a celebration of the extraordinary terrain on offer and how effectively they collaborate to meet the creative brief.

The team that together create the best 5 minute final edit in the nine days of the World Heli Challenge – WINS!
