Fieberbrunn, Austria (5 March 2016) – Wanaka skier Craig Murray has landed himself on the podium of the world’s premier junior big mountain event for the second time this season, finishing second at the Fieberbrunn, Austria competition over the weekend.
Murray explains: “We had some fresh snow the previous couple of days so that made it rideable as it was super low tide on the face before that. The conditions were pretty good.
“I was dropping almost at the end (bib 71) and there were a lot of people crashing so I was really happy to just get through my run reasonably smoothly and stay on my feet.
“It was another really fun day, and I'm stoked to have the opportunity to be out here representing NZ.”
The Kiwi scored 900 points. Raphael Huber of Switzerland scored 1100 for the win and Arthur Raskin of France finished third on 700 points.
Murray stood on the top step of the podium last month as the winner of the Chamonix tour stop
