On Feb. 3, Salmo Ski Hill was a friendly host of the second Nancy Greene zone race of the season. The NG Summit Lake racers had a great turnout with even a few first time racers.

Due to some rain on the hill the week before, Salmo had to change the schedule of racing from a slalom course and a giant slalom course to only a GS course. The teams were informed that they may only be racing once depending on conditions. Race officials then monitored how the snow was holding up through the first run and determined they could have the racers compete in a second course.

Soon the flags were efficiently reset and the teams did not have to wait long before getting to hit the slopes for their second GS course.

Savannah Olsen, a first time racer, said her favourite part of the day was “skiing with friends after the race.” Everyone enjoyed skiing a great hill for the afternoon while they waited for the race results. Our NGSL teams did great, coming in with third place!

Next on the schedule of races Summit Lake ski racers will host a Nancy Greene zone race on Feb. 17, and teams from four other ski hills will be coming out to compete.

Summit Lake Ski Hill will have their club races on Feb. 24, and everyone is invited to come out, sign up and enjoy a great day on the hill.
