Snow School Championships, Val Thorens
28 January 2020 - All
During December, 24 skiers ventured to the first Snow School Championships in Val Thorens, France. The weather on arrival saw slopes closed which led to a reduction in time for race preparation, however this did not deter our girls. All of the skiers demonstrated vigour and determination on race day with everyone showing improvements in their timed runs. Particular highlights include; Maddie, LVI winning both the Under-18 Girls Giant Slalom and Slalom and coming second in the Mixed Overall results, Cara, LV winning the Under-16 Girls Giant Slalom and Slalom, Celeste, UIV coming second in the Girls Under-14 Giant Slalom and Sofia, UIII placing fifth in the Girls Under-14 Slalom. The Wycombe Abbey A team and the Parallel Slalom team missed out in the very intense final against Brighton College. The championships were an excellent and inspirational performance for the younger races to observe.
