Revelsoke ski racers perform well at Red Mountain Keurig Cup event

This past week saw some strong results from our Revelstoke FIS racers, who were competing at a Keurig Cup event at Red Mountain.

This past week saw some strong results from our Revelstoke FIS racers, who were competing at a Keurig Cup event at Red Mountain. The girls, especially Emily Unterberger, performed very well the whole week, reported FIS coach Gregor Druzina. Emily placed consistently near the top in nearly every race, earning fourth and sixth place in two GS races and a fifth in the slalom.

“She had some really good runs and scored some good FIS points,” explained Coach Druzina. “As a result she has been invited to travel with the BC Ski Team to the Canadian Nationals in Mt St Anne, Quebec, at the end of this month.”

Jamie Park placed 13th in GS and 15th in slalom and first-year FIS racer Ravi Vliet got the “most improved’ award on the first day of GS racing. “Ravi is improving a lot,” said Coach Druzina. “I believe that she has huge potential. She is working hard and is on the right path.”

Mitch Smith also had a good series, with a sixth in GS and a sixth and eighth in slalom and was on the podium among the U18 skiers in slalom and GS. The FIS team is now training at Silver Star for the remainder of the week.

Coming up this week in Revelstoke is the club’s biggest race of the season—the U14 CanAms. The best 12 and 13-year-old skiers from four western provinces will gather at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for four days of racing, March 19 – 21. Thursday and Friday will be GS races; Saturday and Sunday will be slalom. All events will be held on Hollywood and every day will have an awards ceremony at the plaza at the base of the mountain.

Come out and cheer on our Revelstoke racers. RMR has some of the best snow in southern B.C. and this will be a great opportunity to show off our home hill and our home town. Go Revelstoke!
