This was a two-day event and Amy was first in the slalom under 12 female category on Saturday, and second in the giant slalom under 12 females on Sunday.

This was a tremendous result, with two podiums over the two days, as there were 147 racers from across Scotland and four from the Silksworth slope in Sunderland.

Earlier in the summer season, in July, Amy finished in second place for under 12 females in the Northern Open held at Silksworth.
