Where Passion Meets Progression - White Industries

White Industries LTD

The ISTC has hired Nick Roma and White industries to build our course. The build will take place over the Christmas Holidays and should be up & running by Jan 3rd. We walked the venue with Nick this summer and we feel the plan that he has come up with will work really well with the terrain that we have. Now everything size wise will be up to mother nature. That hasn’t been going so well for the early season, but the weather predictions are saying the jet stream will be dropping down after mid-November. So hopefully we will get hit with some cold wet weather and have plenty of snow to build Nicks vision. The course will remain up till the end of March, providing we have the weather to support that.


Zep's one of us!

Stoked to follow kids on the road to fulfilling their dreams. If you've got a minute, please give this a watch and if you're so inclined, please consider helping him out a little. Thank you......p
