Canterbury Secondary Schools Ski and Snowboard Champs

Last Thursday 12 students competed in the Canterbury Secondary Schools Ski and Snowboard Champs, held at Mt Hutt. 
Just before race runs started at 10:30 am, a storm blew in shutting the mountain, leaving everybody in whiteout conditions, with high winds and poor vis. After a decent amount of power snow fell on the ski field, race runs could commence around 1:30 pm. 
A night stuck up the mountain was looking probable however, the road opened at 6:00 pm and everybody made it down safe and sound. 
Well done to all competitors, conditions were challenging! Top places went to: Juliette Phillipson (5th), Callum Douglas (6th), Clara Fergus (16th) and Louis Godfrey (20th). Results are in their respective categories entered.
