The Revelstoke Ski Club hosted the Nancy Greene zone final this past weekend and many of our young skiers were on the podium. With almost 200 racers from teams throughout the Okanagan zone, the competition was tough but home-hill advantage seemed to pay off for our youngest skiers, many of whom were experiencing their first race.

On Saturday the youngest skiers had two races through the gates set on Hollywood. This group was aged five to eight and judging by their smiles at the end of the course, we’ve got some eager racers coming up through the ranks. Results were:

2010 boys

Egan Kelly – 1st in both races

2008 boys

Benjamin Jones – 1st and 3rd

2009 boys

Nick Gill – 3rd

Sunday’s two races, also on Hollywood, were for the older kids, ages nine to 12. The Revelstoke Ski Club had many podiums and excellent results from all our racers.

2006 girls

Meya Musseau – 1st and 2nd

2006 boys

Maxim Cater (racing up a category) – 1st and 2nd

2005 girls

Nora Sidjak – 2nd in both races

2005 boys

Reed Keely – 1st in both races

Liam Freathy – 2nd and 3rd

2004 girls

Sydney Musseau – 3rd

Erika Peasgood – 2nd

2004 boys

Teigan Lenzi – 3rd in both races

2003 boys

Alex Jay – 1st in both races

Odin Woods – 2nd in both races

McKinley Buchanan – 3rd in both races

The club is gearing up to host the U14 Can-Ams March 19–22. There will be two days of GS racing and two days of slalom racing between some of the best young skiers in western Canada. Come and check out the action!
