Methven, New Zealand (7 September 2016) – It was a busy day of ski racing at Mt Hutt ski field yesterday (Tuesday) with The New Zealand Alpine National Super-G Championships running alongside two Australia New Zealand Cup (ANC) Super-G races.

Willis was crowned NZ Men’s National Super-G Champion, Overall Men’s National Champion, the Australia New Zealand Continental Cup Super-G Series Winner and Winner of the Super-G yellow bib, and the Winner of the Australia New Zealand Continental Cup (Overall).
