Revelstoke Ski Club busy ahead of hosting Okanagan Zone finals

Revelstoke Ski Club members were all over BC this month. This weekend, they host the Okanagan Zone finals at RMR.

Alex Jay races to an 18th place finish in the giant slalom at the U14 provincial championships at Red Mountain last weekend.

The last month has been a busy one for the Revelstoke Ski Club.

Two U14 athletes, John Sidjak and Nolan Gale, qualified for the BC Winter Games in Penticton. Both athletes posted strong results over the three day event, with John placing fifth in giant slalom and 15th in slalom, and Nolan placing 10th in GS and 16th & 25th in slalom.

The U14s and U12s traveled to Silver Star near Vernon at the beginning of March to compete in the Teck Okanagan Zone Race. The 15-member team earned an astounding 20 top 10 finishes, including podium results by Max Brodkorb with a first & second in GS, Teigan Lenzi with a second & third in GS, Nolan Gale with a third in GS & a third in slalom, and Reed Kelly with a third in slalom.

As a final preparation for next weekend’s Okanagan Zone finals race at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, this past weekend saw skiers from all age groups competing around British Columbia.

At the HUB International Nancy Greene Festival held in Sun Peaks, the Revy Carvers were in dominant form, picking up multiple podium results. Highlights included a first place for Max Brodkorb in the dual race, first & second for Egan Kelly in the skier-cross and moguls, a second for Molly Brodkorb in moguls, and third & fourth place finishes for Reed Kelly in the Kombi event and dual respectively. Noah Paltinger received the ‘Abby Award,’ recognizing his enthusiasm, commitment and team camaraderie.

Revelstoke’s U14 racers took on the rest of B.C. at Red Mountain for the provincial championships. Standout efforts from Nolan Gale included finishing seventh in two GS races and 13th in the Slalom. Hot on his heels in 18th was Alex Jay, while John Sidjak recorded a 14th in GS and Sophia Humphreys won Most Improved (best finish place versus start number) for all but one race.

In Panorama, the U16’s competed against the best athletes of Alberta, British Columbia and the northern clubs of the U.S.A. Bergen Schmidt moved up to 28th in the Super G on Friday and ninth fastest for B.C., while Colm Molder impressed in the first slalom run on Sunday, halving his start number and moving quickly up the field before coming unstuck on the second run.

Easter weekend brings racing back to Revelstoke Mountain Resort, with Giant Slalom and Slalom events on Pitch Black and Hollywood, for more than 100 athletes at the Teck Okanagan Zone Finals. Come and check out the action!

The RSC would like to thank Revelstoke Mountain Resort for their continued support in helping our club host high calibre races.
