Mt Buller turned on the sunshine and the bumps for the legendary ABOM Mogul Challenge on Saturday 31 August with the action extending into a thrilling night final under new stadium lights.
An exciting line up of Australian and international talent kept the crowds gripped with fast and stylish runs on show. The growth in Asian skiing talent clearly on show with a solid line up of Japanese and Chinese entrants mixing it with the locals.
A number of exciting dual heats saw runs going down to the wire. The format is a thrilling one for spectators featuring skiers going head to head down 197 metres of bumps with two huge jumps.
The men’s event was hotly contested, with a number of the best skiers in the world in action including Olympic Silver Medallist Matt Graham, World Cup medallist Brodie Summers, and World Cup winner Benjamin Cavet of France.
It was impressive to see the jumping degree of difficulty step up in the women’s event, especially the Japanese athletes performing jumps not seen before in the women’s field at the ABOM Mogul Challenge.
Brittney Cox was in good form for her 14th event starting the competition back as a Junior in 2005 ultimately taking 2nd place on the podium behind Rino Yanagimoto from Japan in the women’s. Fellow Aussie Olympian Claudia Gueli also had a good run narrowly missing the podium to take 4th place.
The men put on a dazzling show with the usual contenders at the top of the table and Brodie Summers ultimately taking the top spot from James Matheson and Matt Graham who hold 6 and 1 previous ABOM title respectively.
Current world number three and Mt Buller skier Jakara Anthony unfortunately came unstuck on the top jump in her qualification run, catching her feet in the soft snow with a spectacular fall earning her the biggest crash award.
Mt Buller has hosted the ABOM Moguls since 1984 at the height of ‘hot dogging’ and freestyle skiing. Mt Buller is home to the Olympic freestyle team and the new lighting and improvements to the legendary Chamois run look set to ensure a strong future for the sport.

Victoria’s best young mogul skiers put on an impressive show at the 2019 Junior National Mogul Championships “jNats” here at Mt Buller yesterday.
In an historic first for mogul skiing at Mt Buller, the finals were held under new stadium lights, following a major investment as part of the Mt Buller Olympic Training Centre initiatives on the mountain.
In total, 87 athletes from Mt Buller, Falls Creek and Mt Hotham competed in the event across two age categories, with $1,600 in prize money from Mark Adams Real Estate, coveted medals and Bolle goggles.
The event was very successful for the Hill family, with Angus Hill taking top honours in the Junior category, and younger brother Edward winning the Youth category.
Eleanor Mullins won the Junior ladies event, finishing ahead of the Speirs sisters with Indi taking second and Paris in third place. Local Mansfield- Mt Buller athlete Georgia Bolton took out the Youth ladies division cheered on by her family.
The day was a great success with many of the younger athletes really stepping it up in the qualifying session during the day, before putting on a show for the crowd in the spectacular night finals.
The classic Buller fog didn't dampen the spirits of the skiers or the crowd who revelled in the music, skills on show and the top-notch lights that will make more of these night events possible.

The head coaches from each program area will work with the coaches to place athletes in respect to age, ability and mix of genders.
This policy guideline has been written to ensure that the wearers of Karbon uniform garments maintain the highest quality of their garment over the life of their uniform. This policy is relevant for all insulated outerwear, softshell, softstretch and puffer jackets.
GENERAL CARE OF GARMENTS
Water repellency of garments
• Karbon Outerwear garments have an external DWR waterproof coating to prevent
staining and fabric saturation.
• This coating over time will need to re-applied at the time of washing at the end of each
season. This will prevent garments from unnecessarily staining and wetting out.
• It is the responsibility of the garment owner/resort launderer to carry out this reapplication
of coating as part of a regular maintenance program.
Drying of garments
• In wet conditions where garments absorb a small amount of water in the outer fabric, it is
imperative that a direct heat source is not used to dry the garment.
• For example, putting a garment over a heater or directly near a heater can result in
colour migration (bleeding), seamsealing to peel off, distortion to the fabric or peeling of
heat transfer logos. Therefore, a cooler heat is appropriate to dry garments (ie. putting
the garment a reasonable distance away from the direct heat source).
• A drying room is also appropriate to dry garments, as long as they are a safe distance
away from the heater.
Washing of garments
• Washing should only take place as few times as possible over the life of the garment.
• The more the garment is washed the more stress is put on seamsealing, waterproofing,
heat transfer logos, the internal structure of the garment and the DWR coating.
• Garments that are washed incorrectly may result in excessive fading, colour migration,
peeling of logos and a breakdown of waterproofing.
1. Do not wash the garment too frequently. The more washes the garment is exposed to, the
more stress it is put under to maintain its features and integrity. Always attempt to spot clean
where appropriate rather than wash the garment in a washing machine.
2. Wash on a cold wash cycle on a gentle setting. DO NOT WASH IN HOT OR WARM WASH
3. Use a tiny amount of mild detergent (Earth products make a mild detergent that is suitable). Too much detergent affects the waterproofing. Avoid any detergent with bleach in it.
4. DO NOT DRY GARMENTS IN A TUMBLE DRYER. Hang jackets on a hanger to dry in the shade and lie pants flat and dry naturally. Hanging garments in a drying room far away from a direct heat source is acceptable.

Information is now available and applications are open for the 2019-20 TBR Park City Camp!
Park City is one of the premiere ski destinations in the USA and delivers a perfect training environment through its proud 2002 Olympic legacy of the best training and competition facilities available in the world.
Camp Training Options
Major upgrade to the Utah Olympic Park
The Utah Olympic Park are currently in the middle of huge earthworks including moving an entire road to cut in a new full length mogul course which we will have access to during our camp! The pitch of this new mogul course is in between the steepness of Chamois and a regular FIS mogul course which is perfect for skill development. A new chairlift will also be in place for the zone.
TBR Camp Physiotherapist
Freestyle skiing is very taxing on the body and quite often our junior athletes suffer frequent minor physical issues which can mean needing to take time off snow to rest and recover and often require us to find local physics to treat them. This year we are excited to announce that we are bringing our very own physiotherapist who will not only be able to treat athletes but will be able to help individual athletes manage their training load, warm up correctly and recover properly to maximise their time training in Park City.
Reminder to book flights
We have a number of athletes already confirmed for the 2019/20 camp however there are still spots available in our house. We decided this year to book our flights just a little earlier to try and save people a bit of money as the flights tend to go up from now onwards.
With the US dollar less favourable this year flights are slightly more expensive but booking this early we were able to secure a similar price we paid last year at a later date. The flight we have booked as the staff chaperoned flight still has seats remaining however we recommend booking soon to avoid missing the cheaper fare on that flight.
Spaces in the TBR house did fill up last year and some people missed out who wanted to book at the last minute. We recommend locking yourself in sooner rather than later to ensure you have a spot.
More information on the camp, including dates, packages, TBR Condo, meals and supervision can be found at www.tbrparkcity.com
Parents & Families
Don’t let the kids have all the fun! Park City has much to offer parents and families as well.
An added bonus of Park City as our camp location in addition to the world’s best training facilities, is that Park City is one of the premier resorts in North America.
Athletes training with tbrparkcity have the option of their living with TBR or can stay with their parents and receive coaching only.
tbrparkcity encourages all parents to come over and enjoy the "greatest snow on earth" making our program an integral part of this year’s family skiing holiday!!!
