Mount Buller Ski Race Team Camp

The camp started with a bang! The first day skiing up at Mount Buller was horrible and we were all soaked through after an hour of skiing.

Despite the bad start to the camp, it was an amazing experience, and I enjoyed every minute of it, especially being at my home mountain that I have skied at for the last 5-years of my life.

One of my favourite days was the second day, the weather was way better, it was still a little foggy from the day before, but the snow was so soft and powdery it made up for the conditions from yesterday. The Wednesday night we went night skiing and it was amazing, being able to ski down Bourke Street without the crowd and the lift at the bottom and without having to be non-stop dodging first-timers.

My experience at Mount Buller was an unforgettable one and the best camp that I have ever been on. I have made lots of new friends and have met lovely people and teachers on the way.

The week after camp most of us headed back up to Mt Buller for the Victorian Interschools Championships to compete in either Moguls, Skiercross or Boardercross and Giant Slalom. Everyone did a great job with many students competing for the first time. Digby Taylor, Joe Foley, Essie Foley, Owen Clark, Rhett Clark, Tom Connell, Chilli Stanton, Issy Cameron, Monty Dentry, Charlie Pullar, Finn Jacobsen, Izzi O’Connor and Seb Ginsberg all performed exceptionally well and made it through the Nationals Competition at Perisher in New South Wales.
