MSC Snowsports

Snowsports

MSC Snowsports is a unique and integral component of the College’s curriculum. This multi award-winning Program has developed over many years and has given hundreds of students the opportunity to participate from beginner to National standard and beyond.

The centrepiece is the Wednesday Snowsport Program, where up to 120 students spend the whole day on Mt Buller learning and developing skills in Skiing or Snowboarding. Students are coached by qualified instructors and are divided into ability groups where they can also specialise in disciplines such as All-Mountain, SkierCross, BoarderCross, Terrain & Park, Moguls and Freeride. Staff and parents actively participate, which provides for strong community relationships.

Competition in the Victorian Interschools Snowsports Championships (the ‘Interschools’) is strongly encouraged and many students have successfully discovered their competitive edge from humble beginnings. Each year MSC enters over eighty students of varying abilities across the disciplines and has been placed in the top 3 schools in Victoria for well over a decade, including Champion School for three consecutive years. MSC Snowsports has produced National Interschools champions and teams, boasting as one of the most successful schools in Australia.

Our motto of “Fun.Fitness.Participation” continues to be the key elements in the success of MSC Snowsports. We hope our students continue to thrive with this opportunity.

 

Safety and awareness of safety requirements is an important aspect of participation of our Wednesday Snowsports Program. The following SnowSafe Video can assist families with understanding the safety requirements within an Alpine environment -
