2018 Huntly Championship Results

Paul Whibley Taking the fast way down

The weather gods smiled on Huntly for the second time this year with perfect weather for roller ski racing.  Just the right temperature and no rain!

We had a good number of entries this year with entrants from as far afield as Switzerland and a couple of spectators from Saskatoon Nordic ( It was particularly pleasing to see the service represented this year with entries from the Royal Engineers and RAF Nordic.


The results for the event are attached in the pdf below.  It was great to see Cameron Cruickshank get with in 3 seconds of Andrew Musgrave’s course record.

Hunlty Championship Race Results

Here are the results for last weekend’s rollerski races. The normal championships was run on Saturday, with a couple of extra events on Sunday for fun.

Despite a very wet start Huntly managed to produce fine weather for Saturday’s racing. The turn out was good with a crop of new faces from the Kids club and also some new visitors from the Army.

The races were split into Senior/Veterans (10 laps), Under 18/U16 (7 laps), Under 14 /U12 5 laps and Novice 3 laps of the outer loop.

Ben Wooley took the top position in the Seniors Race, with Hector Cowie narrowly pipping Sandy Wishart into Second Place.

The U18/16 classification saw U16 Duncan Gibb beat U18 Gregor Young by a mere 7 seconds. Beth Maclean took a lead of 28 seconds over Lynn Gray.

U14 saw Brodie Murray coming out on top of an impressive field containing, Jack Nicholls, Oliver Newmand and Fergus Newman. Calumn Cooper took the U12 Male title.

In the Novice Race David Massie posted the fastest boys time and Cairngorms Katy Matthew took the girls’ title.

Scottish Rollerski Championships 2012

Sunday saw the Scottish rollerski championship race, held on the Cairngorm ski road over various distances and run by CBNSC. Yet again the weather was kind to all who competed with clear skies and sunny conditions prevailing, creating good if perhaps a little hot, racing conditions.

By the end of the day, Huntly skiers had achieved considerable success and all those who took part skied with a determination and effort that they should be proud of!

The club now has the following Scottish rollerski champions amongst its ranks:

  • Scottish under 16 Boys Champion; Duncan Gibb
  • Scottish under 14 Boys Champion; Fergus Newman
  • Scottish under 14 Girls Champion; Lynne Gray
  • Scottish under 12 Boys Champion; Callum Cooper

Sorry about the photo Duncan, we didn’t have anything newer.

Snow Report December 22nd 2011

Colin Miller braved the  mud and ice in the Clash…

With temperatures on Thursday touching plus 10, the Clashindarroch trails have lost much of their snow. Although a compacted 5cm base was holding out gallantly here and there, there are long bare stretches. A few hundred metres survived on the Haute Route but even this was turning to slush, and the trail was running with meltwater. The Snowgoose and Timberline snowfields offered about 500 metres of continuous skiing on smooth but wet drift, but it’s a long walk to get there! A bit of a change from the past two Christmases, but there’s January and February to look forward to.   
Good to hear the distant notes of the arriving snowmobile carried on the air this morning, Peter. I’ve reported the missing grit bin via the Council website. Found a piece of silver coloured plastic at the entrance at lunchtime. It looked like a battery cover from a large mobile phone, or similar device such a vehicle fuse box. I’ve left it on the post at the pole barrier.
So… even with tomorrow’s brief freeze it doesn’t look like there’s any real prospect of skiing over the next few days.

AGM Minutes

The Club AGM was held at the ski Centre on October 27th. The committee remains the same, except Malcolm Cooper is welcomed to the committee as an events organizer.



Road Conditions Clash Rhynie

Report from Claire Newman
I have just done a quick recce up to the carpark at the Clash. There are road closed signs in Rhynie but they do say Cabrach on them as well. The roads are clear but there is still limited car parking space. It was also snowing/sleeting when I was there at 10.30. I am afraid I did not venture into the forest as I just did not have quite enough time.
