Secondary School Ski Champs Mt Hutt

Twizel High School's Willis Feasey and Mt Hutt College's Penny Wood are the top skiers after the Aoraki Secondary Schools' Championships.

Mt Dobson was once again resplendent as nearly 200 athletes pitted their skills for the chance to represent their region at the South Island Secondary Schools Ski & Snowboard championships in early September.

Highlights included top New Zealand age-group skiers Feasey and Tim Bowman of Timaru Boys' High School fiercely battling on the testing slopes with little to separate them.

In the end it was Feasey who again retained the giant slalom title by a mere 1.5 seconds.

Feasey was also the fastest skier over two runs and took the overall title from Bowman with Mt Hutt's Momotaro Magosaki third.

Bowman took a great deal of satisfaction in leading his TBHS team of Charlie Rieder, Ben Morgan and Tim Harrison to top honours in the teams' event, qualifying for the South Island event. Mt Hutt and Ashburton College were second and third respectively.

In the girls' giant slalom Penny Wood was clearly superior in winning by more than 11 seconds from second-placed Rachel Rolleston from Craighead with Mt Hutt's Aggi Soehngen third.

Wood was also the deserved overall champion.

Runner-up Rolleston led her team of Emma Morgan, Sophie Rieder and Ruby Kelly-Smith to first place from Ashburton and the Craighead 2 team of Lucy Evans, Roshana Ching, Eve Smith and Bella Hargest-Slade.

In the mixed senior teams' event Mt Hutt with Wood, Magosaki, Joe Dole and Soehngen won from Mackenzie and Ashburton Colleges.

In the junior ski-ing Mt Hutt's Prudence Murdoch and Waihi's Ashar Wallace both impressed in winning their titles with Wallace also being crowned the overall junior champion.

The junior mixed teams' event was won by Mackenzie's Chris Rushton, Georgia Urquhart, Bradley Staley and Boon Ozawa while Waihi's Wallace, Hamish Mackay, Angus Ford and Billy Morgan skied off with the junior boys' team title.

In the boys' snowboard teams' event Mt Hutt and Waitaki Boys High School tied in first place.

In the individual snowboard events Tom Schrader (TBHS) was third behind Mt Hutt's Ashleigh Hickman and the winner Dave Cockburn of Waitaki Boys' High School.

In the girls, St Kevin's Georgina Dooney took the title from schoolmate Violet Lawson and Mt Hutt's Rio Okeya.

Mt Hutt Family Skiing

Mt Hutt ski area is looking forward to welcoming families up the mountain for a fun-filled, high country, school holiday experience.

Getting active in the fresh mountain air, having fun and gaining confidence in the snow is the focus of the school holiday programmes at the ski area.

The Kruiser Squad five day holiday programme caters for novice to advanced skiers aged from six to 17 years old or boarders aged from eight to 17 years, and starts in the first week of the September / October holidays.

Dave Grogan, Snowsports School Director, said the programme provided a friendly, safe and supportive environment to encourage learning and development.

"Children will have lots of fun in the snow while building confidence and improving skills," he said.

"Each student will receive individual feedback and attention from professionally trained instructors including basic technical skills and drill exercises. Participants will also get the opportunity to try out some freestyle skiing or riding."

The Kruiser Squad programme includes lunch and lunchtime supervision and runs for a full day from 10.20am to 3.50pm each day for the five days.

For more advanced skiers aged from 12 to 17 years old, the Max Vertical three day programme exposes participants to terrain parks, moguls and steep terrain for three hours a day.

Mr Grogan said the programme promised lots of fun.

"Max Vertical is a fantastic progression programme," he said. "It also includes a skills test, certificate, and a hearty alpine lunch."

For alternative one to five day options, children aged from six through to 17 years old can sign up to the Kea Club and Shredders ski and snowboard programmes (available throughout the season) designed to encourage maximum participation in the snow with fellow skiers or boarders of similar ability.

Mr Grogan said the smallest members of the family were also well catered for at Mt Hutt.

"Children aged six and under enjoy free day lift passes every day of the season and we have a fully licensed Skiwiland Early Learning Centre for two to five year olds," he said.

Run by Early Childhood (ECE) trained children's instructors, the centre provides fun-based activity both indoors and outdoors.

"Parents can hit the slopes confident that children are in the best care and having fun," he said.
