Racers show metal at home course races

The Nancy Greene Summit Lake racer teams had home course advantage this last Sunday as hosts of the Nancy Green zone race.

The Nancy Greene Summit Lake racer teams had home course advantage this last Sunday as hosts of the Nancy Green zone race. The morning started with icy conditions and proved tough for racers in the first slalom run. Conditions softened slightly in time for the second run down the giant slalom course.

Emelia Hoffman, member of the Red Mountain race team, said the “slalom was hard to race” making the second course her favourite.

When the results were in, the NGSL racers had strong finishes with some of the best team finishes yet this season. In the Under 12 boys individual times, Garrett Waterfield received silver on the slalom course, while Kiley Waterfield finished with silver on the slalom course and bronze on the GS course in the individual Under 12 girls division.  Congratulations to all the racers and a huge thank you to all those who worked hard to put on such a great race day! Next zone race will be March 3 in Nelson at Whitewater Ski Resort.

Coming up this Sunday, Feb. 24, be sure to come out to the Summit Lake Ski Hill club races. Cost is $5 to pre-register up to Feb. 23, 6 p.m. To register on the morning of the race, deadline is 9 a.m., and the cost is $10. Race start is scheduled for 10 a.m. There will be categories for all ages, as well as novice for children and adults.  Pre-register by email to Trish at tcannon@telus.net or 265-4355.
