This past weekend the Revelstoke Ski Club and Revelstoke Mountain Resort hosted alpine racers from across the Okanagan as well as competitors from the Hemlock Ski Club and the Windermere Valley Ski Club for the Okanagan zone finals. With more than 150 racers, the weekend was busy and fun filled.

The lower portion of Hollywood was the run of choice for slalom on Saturday. The volunteers loaded the lifts early to prepare the track for the K2 racers who were scheduled to run first.

Max Scharf of Revelstoke completed two clean runs to earn the gold medal, with team-mate Callum Hicks earning the bronze.

The 9- & 10-year-olds made their first experience at a Kinder level race and shared the K1 course. In the E2 category Jenna Knight topped the Revelstoke girls with a 5th place and Aleks Klassen the boys with a 5th finish as well.

Sunday’s event was all about fun as racers had the opportunity to go head to head in the dual paneled slalom course. The action was exciting as racers ran each of the two courses against an opponent for a combined timed finish. Top finishes again included Jenna Knight and Aleks Klassen each walking away with silver medals and Callum Hicks tying for first place with Ryan Moffat of Kelowna.
