Welsh Schools Ski Success

September 30, 2019

The closing weekend of September saw over 170 school children on the newly improved slopes of Llangrannog Ski Slope, all competing for the titles of Welsh Schools Ski Champion. With participation numbers growing year on year at the championships,we were also excited to see the improving standards of the skiers taking part including new schools competing for, and in some cases taking, the overall titles.

The Primary Schools events started off the blustery and sometimes wet Sunday morning involving 27 schools being represented by 58 young skiers. In some very close competition in the girls event, it was won by just 2/100ths of a second by Lori Howie representing Ysgol Tan Y Castell, just pipping Agatha Favill from St Davids College. The boys competition was also won by a tight margin with Cameron Pye from Rydal Pehros narrowly beating Rufus Hiscox from Usk Primary in the 2nd run.
Primary Schools Skiing Champions 2019 in the team event were Usk Primary, taking the title with a strong group of young skiers for the first time.
The Secondary Schools event had over 120 skiers representing 32 schools from across Wales. In the individual competition the Girls event was won by Wales Ski Team member Elin Jones from Radyr Comp, narrowly beating her fellow team mate from Radyr, Seren Lewis. The boys competition was won by Ben Constantine from Ysgol Eirias, beating Steffan Hodson from St Michaels School.
The Secondary Schools Team competition saw a new winner in the girls event with Crickhowell Girls team taking the title by a clear margin. This is the first time Crickhowell have won the team trophy and clearly a result made possible as part of the newly formed Pontypool Ski Racing club where the team skiers train each week - well done PSR!
The Secondary Boys team event was won once again this year by a really strong team from Ysgol Eirias.
