Hotham’s 2010 À la Carte in the Park Series came to a conclusion yesterday with the final event of the season – Spring Sessions Sorbet Slopestyle presented by Oakley.
Competitors hit the kickers on the Summit Terrain Park in an effort to impress the judges and Aiden O’Brien, MC of all the previous À la Carte in the Park events was encouraged by the locals to hang up his microphone to compete on the day. He snuck into first place with extraordinary style in a brightly coloured retro suit and a huge back flip on the first jump.
After the event competitors were treated to a BBQ and sorbet at Swindlers where the winners of the À la Carte in the Park series were announced. Allie Coates and Hannah Studd were presented with Oakley watches as the winners of the Open Series. Hotham ambassador, Nik Grey successfully defended last year’s title as top of the snowboarding juniors while Jake Rast took the junior skiers victory.
Riley Teague won first place for snowboarding in Grommet 1 category. The Mills family did an excellent job with Cody and Carter Mills winning the Grommet 0 skiing and snowboarding sections, while Charlie Mills jumped to the top of the podium for Grommet 1 Skiing.
Thank you to all competitors and staff who entered and helped to put on a great series of five events this season!
