Hello Race Fans...
The ski season has been humming along quickly here at Mount Hotham with excellent training, racing and free skiing happening all over the mountain from our U6 Gromms all the way up to our U99 Masters! But it ain't over yet! Still plenty of snow and six week to keep building skills through until the end of September!
Last weekend many of our Entry Level kids competed in their first Moguls event on the heels of their Speed/Ski Cross Camp from the week before, while both our FIS and Alpine teams have just completed a successful tour of Thredbo for races. The Masters group is prepping for a weekend of race training and racing here at Hotham this weekend. I encourage all parents to take part in the Giant Slalom this Saturday at the very least, or do the whole 4 day camp and races! Events include GS, SL, Ski Cross and Dual SL! Visit our News page on the Hotham Masters Festival for details.
In the next few weeks we will see more action at home and around the country with FIS action at Perisher this weekend, the upcoming Ski Cross here at home on Saturday, Entry Level Decathlon next weekend, Town Championships on August 30th, National Children's races at Buller in early September and Spring Cup on September 12/13. Browse our website or the TeamApp Calendar for more details!
We have been very lucky over the past month and next few weeks to be joined by several athletes that represent us overseas at Academies in the USA, as well as the pleasure of hosting the Australian Ski and Ski Cross teams, plus great American and Canadian athletes including Olympic medalists. It is a great time to be at teamHOTHAM and with all the fundraising, planning and opportunity we have...the future looks bright!
Please reach out to me or your coaches over the next few weeks as you plan your spring skiing and northern hemisphere options.
