SapphireOne Alpine Ski Team starts phase two of training at Coronet Peak, New Zealand

After two weeks skills and gate training at Round Hill Lake Tekapo and Mt Dobson the SapphireOne Alpine Ski Team split up as they leave the McKenzie country in South Canterbury. The team had a fantastic time in the region, even having time to go trout fishing, Warwick Crawford was pleased to catch some of New Zealand’s finest trout.

Hugh McAdam and Warwick Crawford now head back to Australia to finish their year 12 studies, Hugh at The Scots College in NSW where he is the current captain of snow sports at the senior school, and Warwick at Mansfield Secondary College in Victoria.
