Hugo's home mountain is Mt Ruapehu. While his earliest memories of skiing are being cold and wet in Happy Valley, it wasn't enough to dampen his enthusiasm for all things snow. Hugo spent the 2017 season competing in Europe, where he landed a couple of podium finishes at Junior Tour events in Chamonix and Montafon.
When not on snow Hugo spends down days exploring the outdoors, skating or watching ski movies. Little known facts: he can also play the clarinet and has a pet turtle.
