2016 Paddy Pallin Junior shield

Unfortunately due to much needed blizzard on 13th July racing did not go ahead.

Many of the children registered for the Paddy Pallin entered the Charlotte Pass Standard Race on Thursday 14th July set on the Waterfall run.

Southern Alps used the results of the Standard Race to determine the 2016 Junior Alpine Champions and holders of the Martin Walkers Memorial Trophy - congratulations to Hannah Williams and James Lahoud.

The Paddy Pallin Cross Country Race was also cancelled due to poor weather but we were fortunate to be able to set a course on Thursday 14th July at the back of the Charlotte Pass Chalet. The Junior Race team made up most of the entries plus last years Cross COuntry champion Dexter Schneider. Fasted girl to complete two laps was Hannah Williams and fastest boy was William Elliot, congratulations to both who are 2016 Junior Cross Country Champions and holders of the Rex Cox Shield.

2015 season

Junior Bus Trip

The trip at the end of June made the most of the snow conditions - like all resorts this year Charlotte Pass was affected by a lack of natural snow. The resort team did everything possible to extend the ski area. In the end there was enough to test the kids and select the squad to train at Perisher.
Thanks to the trip supervisors, Lodge managers Chris and Ally and the Charlotte Pass Staff for ensuring the success of our trip.

Junior Race team

The race team members selected during the bus trip to train at Perisher are: Indy Cairns, Missy Manoy, Thomas Elliot, Henry Pike, James Lahoud, Sebastian Skawrko-O'Leary, Jacqueline Lee & Hannah Williams.

Thredbo Junior Interclub

Our team did very well to come come second only 3 points behind the Ski Club of Australia - well done team and suporters.

Paddy Pallin Junior Shield

This year was the 56th year running this event.
We are very grateful experienced hand Colin Benjamin was staying at Southern Alps with his three grandchildren and was willing to help organise the races. Kim Easdale and Joan Gardner also provided excellent support.
The cross country was held in the morning on the remaining natural snow on the shaded portion of road up to turning circle at the Pass.
Charlotte Pass Ski school, led by Jill Langeveld did everything possible to ensure we could hold the alpine race - in the end we did this on Wednesday afternoon after normal lift closing time.
The race was well supported with entries from nine of the 12 lodges and the Chalet. There were only a few SASC entries because the lodge wasn't full and the Junior race team could not make the late start.

NSW Junior Alpine Champions

SASC junior skiers were awarded this prize for consistent results during the 2015 winter season.
