Three local Sisters have been scooping up more medals as they continue to ski their way to success.<br />
<br />
Last Sunday (June 23) the, Rossignol sponsored, young athletes took on the country's best skiers at the first ever English Ski-Cross in Manchester with Isobel, 13, and Elektra, 9, coming away with gold and silver medals at the indoor contest held at The Chill Factore. Isobel, 13, won the Girls Youth class and Elektra, 9, came second in the Female Kids class.<br />
<br />
In May this year, Isobel also won silver at the first ever Moguls competition held at the same venue.<br />
<br />
The girls, from Ellastone, near Ashbourne, spent last winter training in The Alps with the French team they race for. <br />
<br />
Competing for their school's ski team, the Abbotsholme School trio, including Jemima, 11, won Bronze for at the Aiglon College Cup - an international inter-school competition held in Switzerland - only being beaten by two Swiss schools.<br />
<br />
There are more indoor competitions planned, but with the days getting shorter the girls are looking forward to heading out to the Alps again as soon as the snow falls this winter.<br />
