Wanaka Tech Series

The start of the season has definitely had some challenging weather and snow conditions.  The first races of the season were to be the Wanaka Tech Series with two days at Cardrona and two days at Treble Cone from 31st July – 5th August, unfortunately these have been postponed.  After a lot of heavy rain, warm temperatures and gale force winds the only race completed was one women’s slalom at Cardrona.  Fortunately the temperatures have dropped considerably and we’ve had a slight top up of fresh snow together with many snow guns blazing so training at Coronet Peak is still going well.
