Mt Buller News - - NEWS -

MT BULLER reg­u­lar Mitch Reeves is no or­di­nary teenager.

The 18-year-old has re­cently re­turned from the US on a ski­ing trip spon­sored by Rip Curl, to ap­pear in a short film show­cas­ing his tal­ent.

Reeves spent the sum­mer in Jack­son Hole, Wy­oming along with dad Nick and men­tor and film­ing Har­ring­ton.

He will be fea­tured in a seg­ment in the lat­est Te­ton Grav­ity Re­search ski film - one of the most awarded ski film pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies in the in­dus­try.

The film will be re­leased on Mt Buller later in the sea­son.

Reeves is also an am­bas­sador ex­pert, Tony for Rip Curl’s snows­ports team.

Tony Har­ring­ton says the spon­sor­ship pro­gram of­fers young sport stars a chance to im­prove their skills, both on and off the slopes.

“We’re on the look­out for peo­ple who are smart, ar­tic­u­late as well as good ath­letes,” he said.

“We are will­ing to train them up and help them in life ex­pe­ri­ence as well as im­prov­ing their ath­letic abil­ity.”

As for Reeves, Har­ring­ton couldn’t be more hope­ful for his bright fu­ture ahead.

“The kid is rip­ping,” he told Mt Buller News.
