The Revelstoke Ski Club has been busy the past two weekends, sending racers to Red Mountain, Big White and Panorama.

From Feb. 25-28 the FIS team was at the Miele Cup Series race at Red Mountain near Rossland, B.C.

With 30 centimetres of fresh snow the night before the event, followed by cold and sun for the next four days, conditions were soft on course for the racers, who were determined to boost their rankings in the FIS standings.

“The four days of racing in Rossland were amazing and very positive for the team,” said coach Milan Arsovoski. “We accomplished 85 per cent of our goals for this race. Many of the racers had their best results in their career.”

Eight skiers from Revelstoke competed in two slalom and two giant slalom races. Results are as follows:

Emily Unterberger: Slalom – DNF, 22nd; GS – 31st, 18th

Alix Petit: Slalom – DNF, 13th; GS – 16th, 10th

Jamie Park: Slalom – DNG, 34th; GS – 21st, 15th

Noemi Petit: Slalom – 43rd, 25th; GS – DNF, 28th

Lachlan Hicks: Slalom – 26th, 24th; GS – 30th, 35th

Peter Behncke: Slalom – DNF, 18th; GS – 50th, DNF

Cole Smith: Slalom – DNF, DNF; GS – 29th, 39th

Dominic Unterberger: Slalom – 10th, DNF; GS – 20th, 18th

“It was an awesome weekend of skiing for me, I am happy with my results and hopefully I will keep progressing throughout the remainder of the season,” said Dominic Unterberger.

The next FIS race is the J1 Nationals at Whistler from Mar. 8-12. Dominic Unterberger and Alix Petit’s next competition will be at Schweitzer, Idaho, for the U.S. Western Championships.

Super-G races at Panorama Mountain

Five racers from Revelstoke’s K2 team were at Panorama Mountain Resort for three Super-G races last weekend, March 2-4.

Max Scharf led the way for the team, finishing fifth, fourth and 12th in his three races.

“It was a good time and I’m happy that I qualified for the CanAm Championships,” he said.

Mitchell Smith finished ninth, eighth and sixth; Callum Hicks 12th, 15th, and 52nd; Bryce Molder 47th, 48th and 50th; Sonia Schwenck 23rd, 29th and 30th; and Caroline Bouwmeester 42nd, 38th and 52nd.

“I’m proud of the kids skiing,” said coach Ned Lazaveric. “It was a great weekend for the team.”

For Bouwmeester, Hicks and Molder, it was their first speed event.

“It was great skiing a speed event for the first time and it was a fun weekend,” said Hicks.

K2 racers who have qualified will be heading back to Panorama from Mar. 21-24 to compete in the CanAm Western Championships against their western Canadian and American counterparts.

K1 racers, who have been training hard at Revelstoke Mountain Resort over the past few weeks, are looking forward to their provincial series Mar. 17-19 at Big White.

Nancy Greene Racers compete at Big White

The Revelstoke Ski Club’s Nancy Greene Program competed at the zone final race this past weekend, March 4-5, at Big White. The field was huge, with more than 100 racers in both the E1 (5–8-year-old) and E2 (9–11-year-old) age category.

In a race such as this, a top 10 finish is a huge accomplishment. I am very pleased the way all our racers competed, everyone had tons of fun, and we represented Revelstoke well.

Five-year-old girls:

Alina Hamilton – 2nd

Eloise Beauce – 7th
