The event was hosted by Wycombe Phoenix Ski Club on behalf of Snowsports England.
That club's own slope and clubhouse was unfortunately destroyed by fire in 2005.
It has risen through the ashes and continues to be a thriving organisation that uses the Gosling Ski Centre as a temporary training base.
The event was sponsored by Sun Peaks Resort, Canada and Ski Bartlett.
Special guest Ed Drake, Britain's number one Olympic male ski racer was in attendance at the prize giving ceremony.
