It was a clear and cold weekend at Sun Peaks Resort for the Revelstoke Ski Club’s younger competitors, racing giant slalom at a Teck-sponsored event. The older FIS racers were at Mt Norquay for a Van Houtte Cup, racing giant slalom and slalom.

“The conditions were very good for ski racing, and the competition was well run,” said head coach Ned Lasarevic. “Our U16s did really well. Mitch Smith, Max Scharf and Callum Hicks were in the top 10 in all three races, with Mitch on the podium for the weekend’s final race on Sunday. We also had a few top 10 results with our U12 racers, who learned a lot about competing in these bigger races.”

In Norquay, the conditions weren’t quite as favourable. “It was a hard race under difficult conditions,” said FIS coach Milan Arsovski. “The first day we had 30 centimetres of new snow and the next three days it was -25, making it hard to maintain concentration and focus in the cold. The team didn’t score the results they wanted, but improvement was made. The girls did their best, and we will keep up the hard work and motivation for the races to come.”
