Welcome to the September 2017 Newsletter. The last month has been action packed with Ladies week, Mens week and many racing events. Check out the details below to see some great pictures and results.

A lot of fresh snow has recently arrived so get your bookings in for some awesome spring skiing!

2nd Fastest Open Team
2nd Fastest Snowboard Team
Rachel Strevens - 2nd Fastest Female Snowboarder
Monique Oosterbaan - Fastest Overall Woman.

Well done to everyone who competed. Click here for all photos.
