Skiers and snowboarders threw themselves off jumps and down rails as the national freestyle championship came to Norwich.
Known as the Farmers Jam, the competition saw competitors from across the country perform at Norfolk snowsports club on Whitlingham Lane in Trowse.
The two day competition, which has been running for 12 years, also had free ski and snowboard taster lessons.
Chris Sturgess from Norwich snowboard store Revolutionz, which sponsored the event, said: “It’s a great showcase for the facilities we have here in Norfolk and hopefully this event will encourage people to give these sports a go.”
On Saturday evening, in an event called mogul madness, skiers and snowboarders took to the slope in fancy dress.
