Students in Eric Dufresne’s Grade 6/7 class participated in the class’s sixth annual Ski and Board Building Competition.

The judges, Jason Krauskopf from Rayz Boardshop, Anna Ziegler from Hudson Bay Mountain Adventures, and Jamie Fischer from Paranormal Boards pored over this year’s selection of skis and boards from the class.

Each judge also gave a short talk about their area of expertise in the ski and board industry.

Dufresne uses the class project to enhance and use the skills of his students.

The three winners chosen were Noah Walter in first with his “Neverland” skis, Emily Hobley-McCosker in second with her Compass themed skies and Devyn Asato in third with her Sunglass snowboard.

The winners each received prize packages plus decals were presented to the entire class.
