High Speed Action at Mt Hutt for NZYS National Champs

New Zealand’s young ski racers demonstrated their skills across both speed and technical ski racing disciplines at the National Championship Super Giant Slalom (Super-G) and Slalom held at Mt Hutt Ski field on Friday 29th and Sunday 31st August. The events attracted close to 80 competitors and were held in calm sunny conditions with cold overnight temperatures keeping the snow firm enough for racing. 

Our newly crowned champions are: 

Super G
U14 Women - Alice Robinson  (Queenstown)
U16 Women Georgia Bushell (Christchurch)
U18 Women Gendi McFadyen (Wellington)
U14 Men Julius Staufenburg  (Wanaka)
U16 Men James St.Ville II (Wanaka)
U18 Men Jackson Rich (Porirua)
U14 Women GG Wattenmaker (Queenstown)
U16 Women Eden McKay (Auckland)
U18 Women Sophie Yandall (Auckland)
U14 Men Ethan Baxter-McAsey (Auckland)
U16 Men Benjamin Richards (Auckland)
U18 Men Jackson Rich (Porirua)

Several racers now hold national championship titles across multiple disciplines. In the U14 and u16 women’s categories Alice Robinson and Georgia Bushell have added the Super-G title to the Giant Slalom (GS) titles they won at Coronet Peak earlier in August.  

While Sophie Yandall holds national championship titles for Slalom and Giant Slalom. U18 Jackson Rich is the national champion for Super G, Slalom and Giant Slalom.

Snow Sports NZ would like to extend its thanks to the MT Hutt race department for hosting the NZYS events. A big thank you, also, to Technical Delegate Nigel Brown.
