Diaries Downunder: Jye Kearney & The Mega Storm

Posted by Connor Hill on Wednesday September 21 2016

Diaries Downunder recently flew Australian professional snowboarder, Jye Kearney, into Christchurch for their latest episode – along with Rob Mitchell, Nick Hyne, Ben Comber and Nick Brown, the crew make their way to Mount Hutt to tackle the heavy snowfall. The atmosphere changes rapidly however when the biggest storm of the year hits and blankets the whole Canterbury region with fresh snow. This leads the crew to Mount Olympus, where Jye recounts his tale of riding a ‘nutcracker’ rope tow.
