Great weekend of fun skiing at Phoenix Mountain

Fun day racing for Nancy Green Zone competitors

Phoenix Mountain hosted the event last weekend

Nakusp’s Summit Lake Racers took part in a Nancy Greene Zone Race on Sunday, Feb. 4 at the Phoenix Mountain Ski Resort near Grand Forks.

The team of 4-12 year olds joined racers from Nelson’s Whitewater Ski Resort, Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, and the Salmo Ski Hill for the competition.

The Zone race is part of the Nancy Greene Ski League , which introduces ski racing in a way to promote fun and participation, and to de-emphasize winning.

Collectively, the Summit Lake Racers placed third in the competition, while Finn Watt placed second in the region in the U-12 boys class.

The Summit Lake Racers will be holding their club races this coming Sunday, Feb. 11. Everyone is welcome to come out, try their hand at racing, and have fun!
