Mt Hotham delivered a serving of fresh snow with a side of scrumptious sunshine for day 1 of the Victorian Biathlon championship.
Coach Luca set a technically challenging course for the Open competitors with fast downhills into tight turns and immediately up steep short climbs. These rewarded the skiers who could carry speed.
Nine biathletes from NSW competed in various age groups and classes. It was good to see Jenny and Kate competing for the first time.
