Rangatira News October 2017

Welcome to the October 2017 Newsletter. Spring is here and the welcomed warmer weather means there is some great skiing to be had on the upper mountain. Scholarship week was held last week and was a great success even if the weather didn't always playball. We've also had some great races results from club members over the past month. Check out the details below to see some great pictures and results.

NGAURUHOE TROPHY RACE
 
The final inter club race of the season was the Ngauruhoe Trophy race, where teams of 5 race against each other to find the fastest overall team on the mountain. Conditions were challenging and the race ended up being held underneath the Waterfall Express Chair. Rangatira was once again proudly represented at this race and WON THE OVERALL NGAURUHOE TROPHY!!!
