The Racing Season has Begun!

The 2016 ski season has launched with great snow conditions across all resorts. The opening race of the season is already ticked off, the Sprint X at Lake Mountain last Saturday. Next weekend Falls Creek and Perisher will see events held on both days. More snow is expected during the week, but conditions are already such that all events will go ahead.

  • July 2 – Birkebeiner Classic – Falls Creek
  • July 2 – Paddy Pallin Junior – Perisher
  • July 3 – Fast & Female – Falls Creek
  • July 3 – Cooma Clean out the Cobwebs – Perisher

Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase: Event 2

This Saturday is the second event of the Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase 2016 series – The Birkie Classic, which will be held at Falls Creek, start time 10 AM.
I’m reliably informed that the conditions are fantastic up there, and we should receive a bit more snow during this week.  Hopefully everyone can make it to enjoy this great start to the season.

Note, all previous Ski Chase participants are automatically registered in the 2016 competition.  For new registrations, follow this link:
