John Sidjak races the slalom in Sun Peaks.

The Revelstoke Ski Club showed strong form over the weekend, as 18 athletes from the U12, U14 and U16 teams travelled to Sun Peaks to compete in the Okanagan Zone Race Series sponsored by Teck.

Podium performances from Revelstoke included Reed Kelly’s single gold and three silver medals in the U12 boys, Nora Sidjak with a bronze in slalom for U12 girls, and older brother John Sidjak achieving a third place slalom result for U14 boys.

Colm Molder, Jenna Knight, Bergen Schmidt, Nolan Gale, Teigan Lenzi, Max Brodkorb and Sydney Musseau also achieved top ten finishes.

For the U12 and U14s this was the first race of the winter and their strong showing is due in part to hours of training both on and off their skis since September.

All of the athletes will resume a one-month training block at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, as well as weekly dryland sessions, in preparation for the next set of races at the end of February. Thanks to the coaches and parents who helped make this weekend such a success.
