Girls in Prep to Year 12 are given the opportunity to develop their agility, speed and skill on the powdery snowfields of Mt Buller in Victoria through Korowa Snowsports.
Whether your daughter enjoys cross country skiing, downhill skiing or snowboarding, the emphasis is on participation and community at Korowa. Girls are welcome to join Snowsports if they can travel down Blue runs independently and stop safely. The advantage of the Korowa Snowsports program is that students make new friends from all year levels across Junior and Senior School.
During the 10-week season, girls participate in land training at Korowa and have an on-mountain time trial and training weekend. The Training and Korowa Champions Race weekend at Mt Buller is a real highlight for both girls and parents as they challenge themselves and each other to ski or board as fast as possible down the mountain. Families celebrate their achievements together with social events.
The season culminates in the Victorian Interschool Snowsports Championships and all students who meet the ability level requirements are placed in a team.
Friends of Snowsports
Snowsports at Korowa is supported by the Friends of Snowsports (FOSS). This is a very friendly group of parents who work together with Korowa to plan the logistics of the trials and training weekend as well as the championship event. Families are actively involved in the program as they design their own options in transport and accommodation. Parent volunteers are appreciated as team managers and event officials. Dinners and parent races are held throughout the season so we can enjoy just as much fun as the girls!
