During the school holidays I competed in the South Island Ski Championships held at Mt Hutt. I came second, winning silver, in the Giant Slalom in the Under 14 girl’s category. Prior to the South Island Championships I competed in the New Zealand Under 14s event held at Coronet Peak and Mt Hutt. While I did not place in these races, I gained some good experience competing at New Zealand level and applied what I  learnt in my training this year. While the season has come to an end, I am looking forward to keeping my training going through the summer season ready for next winter.
