JUMP WON BY H. WIGLEY

(By Telegraph—Press Association.) THE HERMITAGE, September 2. The New Zealand ski championships concluded today at Mount Cook, with the ski jump, which took plage on a slope in front of the Ball Hut. During the whole meeting adverse weather was encountered. For the past six days snow has been falling almost continuously on the Ball Glacier, with further intermittent snowstorms today. It had been intended to hold the downhill race from the top of Bail Pass, but as the course would not be safe for some days because of danger from avalanches, this event was abandoned.

Competitors in the ski jump took off in driving wind and snow, which considerably reduced the chances of greater distances being made. H. Wigley made three excellent jumps without a fall.

The three placed men were: H. Wigley (Tasman Ski Club), 39ft 6in and 40ft lin, 1; R. McKenzie (Tasman Ski Club), 24ft lin and 22ft 3in, 2; H. Carter (Ruapehu Ski Club), 24ft 4in and 25ft 9in (fell), 3. -
