The final piece of the 2016 Arctic Winter Games puzzle for Team NWT is now set.

Snowboarding held its territorial trials at Bristol Pit on Saturday with a small but eager bunch looking to nail down a spot.

The trials featured slopestyle, big air and slalom events, which is what will be on display in Greenland in March.

Here’s who will be on the plane:

Juvenile boys
Benjamin McGregor, Yellowknife
Austin Brown, Yellowknife
Andreas Robichaud-Vogt, Fort Smith*
Benjamin Toner, Yellowknife*
