Skiing & Snowboarding

Each year in late September the Westlake Snowboard team competes in the North Island Schools Snowboard Championships at Turoa Ski Field, Mount Ruapehu.

The competition is the largest of its kind in New Zealand. The tournament consists of three snowboarding disciplines: Slalom, Slope-style and Boarder-cross.

We also compete in the Auckland Snowsport’s Competition with the Ski team.  Auckland Snowplanet Competition is held in June and the North Island Secondary Schools Competition is in the last week of Term 3, with trials held for it early in Term 3.

Teachers in Charge of Snowboarding and Skiing: Ms A Eagles and Mr D Smale
