Last Saturday saw 10 Ficino School skiers and boarders enter in a Snow planet Giant Shalom race event. There were around 120 competitors from all over Auckland and most have been involved with the snow planet 365 race program. Considering most of the Ficino children have not raced or had experience in this type of event they did really well. Brooke Chandler managed to win the under 10 girls event against girls who have been in intensive race programs for the past 3 years. Past pupil Mathew Hall also got third in his Snowboarding event, a great result considering he only started snow boarding last year!
This weekend is the Northern Snow Circuits race event, which will see around 170 competitors come from around New Zealand. Good luck to all our skiers and snow boarders.
