Thursday 10 September – Interski 2015 – Daily Update
This week has felt like a time warp – just as you begin to find the daily rhythm of a “full on” Interski day, the week is nearly gone and the closing formalities have arrived.
Today, it was the turn of those nations who have watched and waited patiently all week to perform their demos and workshops. The energy and engagement was still as high as it was on day 1.
Despite overcast skies and a stiff chill on the upper slopes there was some great action around the Cerro Castor resort. Not least in the Fun Park where the Crews from various nations including; Argentina, New Zealand, U.S.A, Switzerland, Chile and Great Britain’s Ben Kinnear gave us some jaw dropping action….. (watch the video)!
There was no Dual Slalom Team Racing today – but the semi’s and finals will be staged tomorrow along with each nation performing one last demo run at the Official Closing Ceremony (Friday).
Great Britain and Australia shared a moment of nostalgia today see the post below on “THE HAT GOES HOME”.
There was no let up in the programme pace off the hill either, with more meetings in the conference centres for the Presidents, Chairs and CEO’s and mini lectures in Ushuaia for the instructor delegates. Great Britain’s Paul Garner and Becci Malthouse captivated an audience of around 60 people with an interactive presentation of BASI’s TIED model. (The presentation will be posted on BASI’s Interski 2015 – Cerro Castor, Ushuaia. blog page on this link: https://www.basiinterski.org.uk/content/
With some of BASI’s delegation heading home tomorrow evening, Great Britain re-grouped this evening for dinner. The Team showed their thanks and support for Team Coach – Andi McCann and Team Manager – Roy Henderson by presenting them both with topographical maps of Antarctica signed by each one of GB’s Team Members.
As they say, it’s not over till the fat lady sings – I suspect she may sing loud and long tomorrow…..
