Spring at Mt Hutt

Friday, August 30, 2013

 Recently a big event was on Mt Hutt. A round of the IPC World Cup. The last time a World Cup was held in N.Z. was in 1990 on Mt Hutt. This week Adam Hall scored a bronze Medal in the G.S and Corey Peters won gold in the combined G.S Slalom the a bronze next day in the G.S. Athletes from 10 countries competed. All were positioning themselves for a shot at the upcoming Olympics in Sochi Russia. The course was hard and fast with Mt Hutt receiving little snow for some time. As soon as the events were finished 25 cms from a southerly storm arrived then  the next day 30th August another 5cm's so the mountain is again in tip top condition.
