David Conquers Coronet Peak

Just in case you missed it in the Mountain Scene and Southland Times David reached his goal of skiing from the top to the bottom of Coronet Peak.

6 years ago we taught him how to stand on his skis again for the first time after his accident. That first year he managed to complete a few straight runs by the end of the season.  The following season he was making turns on the learner slope only.

A few years on and with lots of support from many different volunteers he has finally got to ski the run that used to be his every day warm up.  Thanks to all of you for being part of this journey and of the journeys of the all those who ski and snowboard with your assistance.  You’re awesome!
