Updated 2015 Race Calendar

The 2015 Australian Race Calendar has just been updated on the Calendar page. While most changes are minor changes in contact details or start times, there are two particularly notable changes.

  • On the weekend of August 1/2 the techniques of the Australian Junior Championship have been reversed. The Sprint will now be Classic and the Distance events will be Freestyle.
  • A new ACT Schools Cup event has been added on July 12. This is a freestyle mass start event in Interschools divisions. More details are available on the Snowsports ACT website.

Snow has already fallen in Lake Mountain where the 2015 season racing begins with the Sprint X on June 27 (with the Paddy Pallin Junior at Perisher just 1 hour later!).
