A few facts regarding the National Snowsports Championship series to give you an idea of the scale of the event:
- Schools from NSW, ACT, SA, QLD and WA
- Number of entries: 3,380
- Number of participating schools: 220
Lorraine Peck has done an almighty job putting the teams together and entering them, which takes a huge amount of time, and Nancy Lee was amazing stepping for Lorraine and being up on the hill with the girls at the regional event. A bunch of parents have also taken volunteer official roles throughout the series and we thank them for their dedication.
