Podiums for Revelstoke Ski Club racers in Kimberley, Sun Peaks

Revelstoke Ski Club skiers had some great results in two locations over this past week. The FIS team were in Kimberly for a six-day event, where Revelstoke’s Domenic Unterberger, skiing for the BC Ski Team, was on top of the podium twice for two slalom races. Mitch Smith also placed strong, coming in fourth overall in one race, second among the U18s. Teammate Jamie Park also did well, with a fifth place finish.

The Kimberly event was originally scheduled to include a super G and a downhill race, which would have been the first downhill competition for some of our first-year FIS skiers. Unfortunately, the speed races were cancelled because of the rain and warm temperatures.

Organizers set up another slalom race and then had to cancel the rest of the competition. Our FIS team is now training at Nakiska, preparing for a NorAm race next week.

Our U16, U14 and U12 skiers went to Sun Peaks over the weekend for a GS race. Revelstoke athletes posted a number of podium finishes as well as top-10 results. Caroline Bouwmeester took first place in two events in the U14+ category, which allowed all racers over 13 years old. Aleks Klassen took third place on Saturday and sixth on Sunday in the U14 category, and Alex Jay, our only U12 racer at the event, took two sixth-place finishes and ended up on the podium in third place on Sunday. Jenna Knight was seventh among the U14 girls on Saturday and sixth on Sunday.

“The conditions were excellent over the weekend with cold, hard snow, and our kids faced some tough competition,” said head coach Ned Lazarevic. “They skied very well and we’ll continue to work on technique to get ready for a number of important races coming up, including the Can-Ams, the Provincials and Whistler Cup.”
