Oliver Mathew continued to challenge for best Under-9 coming second, and Alex Sayers, Archie Banister and Callum Black all won their three head-to-head races.

With the next round on September 17, and the South West Schools Championship on the September 24, it will be a busy month,.

The South West Schools Championship will see entrants from at least four local schools, Kewstoke Primary, Backwell, Churchill Community School and Chew Valley, who will all be supported by Avon Ski Club at the event.

The championship is an event open to anyone at school in the south west, who is able to at least link snowplough turns. If anyone would like to participate, the cost is £10 for the day (at Gloucester Slope) which includes equipment as well.
