Day 2 started with strong winds and fog, but after a short delay the race went off on a slightly shortened course down Snake Gully. Day 3 and 4 saw two Slalom races and yet again the conditions were superb from top to bottom with DJ Eddy firing on the racers and providing live commentary for all guests.

Mount Hotham’s own, Greta Small, took out the first Women’s Giant Slalom Race with the support of her home crowd in a combined run time of 2.01.04. She was followed closely by NZ’s Piera Hudson in 2nd  and Poland’s Sabina Majerczyk in 3rd. In the Men’s Race, Slovakian Adam Zampa impressed with a combined run time of 1.56.04. He was followed by American, Hig Roberts and Australian, Luc Chevalier. She followed her victory with a 2nd place in the second Giant Slalom on Tuesday and another victory in the Slalom on Wednesday.

“The atmosphere on the mountain this week is electric with athletes from all corners of the globe here to compete”, said Belinda Trembath, General Manager, Mount Hotham Skiing Company. “It is a real treat to be able to watch athletes of this caliber and we would encourage any budding skier to come up here and see them in action for some inspiration.”
