Summit Master Stories 

 

The Summit Masters was the brain child of Lynne Grosse, a falls creek local who achieved local and international success between 1979- 1985. Lynne was a successful freestyle skier achieving the best results by an Australian on the international circuit. Soon after her retirement Lynne came up with the concept of the summit masters, a competition held on the summit run in the bowl. The event comprised of a dual mogul knock out competition. Within three years of its inception the competition attracted the maximum 100 world class athletes from Australia and overseas. The competition mogul course was 230m long, 12m wide, with an average gradient of 26%. With music blaring athletes were awarded points based on jumps, speed and technique. At the end of the event a master, mistress and junior of the mountain trophy was awarded. The event ran for 10 years from 1985 - 1995 and in 2019 it is coming back for the second year in a row.
