We are excited to support a Hotham local skier Sarah Sauvey when she competes in the Women’s Ski Cross today for the first time at the Olympics.
Ski Cross is making its debut Olympic appearance in Vancouver 2010 and Sarah will be chasing her Olympic dream skiing for Great Britain. Sarah had the opportunity to become a member of the British team and she took this opportunity in the best interest of her sporting career at the time.
Ski Cross is a thrilling winter sport for athletes and spectators alike. Four athletes compete head to head in an elimination style format on a technically demanding downhill course consisting of manmade and natural rollers, jumps, kickers, high banked turns, corner jumps and tabletops at speeds in excess of 70 km/h. Only the first two competitors to cross the finish line move on to the following round until the final heat determines the winner. This combination of terrain and format is guaranteed to produce epic thrills and spills making ski cross the perfect spectator sport.
Make sure you catch this action packed event on the screen. If you want the opportunity to see some live ski cross action head up to Hotham this winter to check out one of our Ski and Boarder Cross events on Hotham’s internationally designed and recognised course.
