Responding to the problem of the lack of young athletes in our sport, a developing program designed together by ASKIMO, DAV, SSA and www.skimountaineering.org will bring help and create the winners of the future races.
The 2-days program is open to all young people between 12 and 18 years with some experience on skimountaineering and a mature level on downhill skiing. Teaching and racing will be combined in this week-end, thanks to the volunteer help of experienced racers and the support of our sponsors (ABS, COLLTEX, DYNAFIT, PIEPS, SILVRETTA).

The Temple Basin Randonnee Rally was held in Arthur's Pass on Saturday the 30th September. Despite Temple Basin Ski Area being closed for the season, almost all of the snow being blown or rained away and the race day being less than perfect, 8 hardy competitors turned out for the first ski mountaineering race to be held in New Zealand. The course was shortened from the planned 1000 vertical meters of climbing, to 2 laps of around 300 vertical meters because of snow and weather conditions. Everyone had a great day, with all the racers and marshals walking away with some great prizes from sponsors of the race.
