The Torah Bright Mini Shred, held in Thredbo Sunday, saw the biggest ever line-up of snow grommets yet, with 250 kids turning out for a big day out with Torah. The weather turned on its wintry best, with snow falling for most of the day.
The Thredbo terrain park crew developed one of the coolest mini terrain parks Thredbo has ever seen that included Australia’s first half pipe of the year. There were jumps, jibs, transitions, half pipe, quarter pipe and rollers for every kid to learn new tricks and progress.
Stoke levels were extreme with the little shredders describing it as the #BestDayEver
Thredbo’s Park Crew went above and beyond on their build this year, creating a pint-sized half pipe that was ridden by kids both big and small. Image:: Provided
“I loved this day so much, I have a whole new group of friends, I met them all here today, what a day, loved it” “So excited I rode my first box and it was with Torah Bright, just so happy” “Did you see those guys do that jump, I want to do that one day” Torah invited some of the best skiers and snowboarders in Australia to help out and give coaching tips to the mini shredders. The roll call of mentor riders, were snowboarders Ryan Tiene, Jye Kearney, Joss McAlpine and Zahra Kell, along with skiers Manuela Berchtold, Tom Waddell, Harrison McInnes and Ryan Cooke.
“Seeing the talent level of these little Aussie shredders was amazing…It was awesome to share advice, tips and the stoke with all the kids and have snow flurries falling all day long…absolutely magical” said Torah Bright.
The Torah Bright Mini Shred is all about inspiring the next generation and it’s clear that the future of Australian skiing and snowboarding is looking very bright with the kids progressing and taking their riding to the next level, some of the talent on show was outstanding. The day wrapped up with signing session with Torah, music and yes of course a dance off with mini shredders boogying in their boots.
