The FIS Australia New Zealand Alpine Championships will kick off this week at Hotham, with some big name competitors aiming to make their mark on the hill.
For four days, 25-29 August, Snake Gully will be turned into an international standard racing course for Slalom and Giant Slalom races.
Hotham local and Sochi Olympian, Greta Small, will be looking to improve her world ranking after the Sochi Winter Olympics, and with a home crowd behind her, she could go all the way in each of her disciplines. Regular FIS competitors, Polka Sabina Majerczyk, and Kiwi Piera Hudson, will be giving Greta a run for her money to earn big points of their own this week.
In the male events, Hotham local Luke Laidlaw will be giving it his all to overcome the likes of international competitors the Zampa brothers, Nolan Kasper, Adam Barwood, Tim Kelly, Michael Ankeny, Will Gregorak and fellow Aussie from Perisher and Sochi Olympian, Ross Peraudo.
