Inaugural Ram's Head Downhill!!

Subject to the weather, and obviously snow, the greatest event in the history of Hanmer Springs Ski Area will take place Saturday and Sunday July 16/17.
The inaugural Rams Head Down Hill will see battle hardened competitors wolf down a pie and race for the tows having to complete two runs, one on skis/boards and one on a toboggan, before finishing with a caffeine and carbonated V skull.
Prizes you ask? A leg of Ram shot on field for the first one to complete the course and their drink.
It’s a laid back and free event, well not that laid back, the competition is bound to be fierce. But it’s definitely free.
Once the competition is over the party will run into the night with movies screened inside thanks to Salomon.
Almost forgot the best part. It’s a FULL MOON! Provided there’s snow on the ground and the clouds stay away there’s one large natural light to facilitate night skiing and the tows will be cranking!
There are spot prizes from Salomon and a CHILL BBQ on Sunday with all proceeds going to the Hanmer Springs Ski Area.
There’s no need to book for the event but be sure to book your accommodation in advance, this will be a great event not to be missed.
If you’ve never skied Hanmer its a must, the laid back vibe is fantastic and it’s a prerequisite for anyone wishing to get their hands on the limited edition CHILL Ski 11 T’s
