Victorian Interschools Are Off And Racing! (25-Aug-08)

Mt Buller, VIC, August 25, 2008 - Mt Buller is bustling with competition and excitement

Mt Buller is bustling with competition and excitement as they play host to the 51st Subaru Victorian Interschool’s Snow Sports Championships, which commenced on Sunday August 24, 2008.

More than 5,000 entries have been received for this weeks’ competition, which includes events in five disciplines: skiing, snowboarding, boarder cross, skier cross and moguls.

The opening ceremony was held last night on Bourke St, including a spectacular fireworks display, flare runs and festivities for the children.

Leigh Crang, chairman of the School Snow Sports Development Foundation, said “the Victorian Interschool’s is the largest snow sports event in the Southern Hemisphere, and the largest event of its kind in the world.”

“For many children the Subaru Victorian Interschool’s Snow Sports Championships is like a mini Winter Olympics as many of the children compete in five disciplines over the course of the championships,” said Mr Crang.

“The focus of the Victorian Interschool’s has always been on participation, and this year we have over 5,111 entries competing in 50 events throughout the week.”

Buller Ski Lifts’ general manager, Laurie Blampied, said Mt Buller was proud to have hosted the Interschool’s for over 50 years, and hoped to be fostering snow sports talent for many years to come.
