Snowboard superstars greet fans in Nelson's downtown

More than 200 snowboard fans filed through Nelson's Tribute board shop on Baker Street on Wednesday night as some of the world's best signed autographs in preparation for the Red Bull Ultra Natural.

The snowboard event is set to head up to Baldface Lodge north of Nelson on Friday, but on Wednesday night some of the 16 snowboard superstars that have arrived to Nelson earlier this week took time to meet fans.

Signing videos, posters, helmets, shirts, snowboards and almost everything else imaginable, fans were thrilled to meet the likes of Travis Rice, Nicolas Muller, DCP, Terje Haakonsen and Mark McMorris.
