Wow what a great first race of the season. A huge thank you to the ROC (Race Organizing Committee), volunteers, coaches and families for creating such a great race day for our athletes. Huge smiles all around and every team was awarded a ribbon for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. We typically don’t share individual results at this age as the focus is on skill development and fun.

U12: Ian and Pippa have been working on GS and SL with the U12 team to prepare them for their first competitive event of the year this Sunday in Nelson. These athletes will compete in SL Time Trials and then explore the mountain with the WhiteWater team.
U14 & U16 Red Mountain Racers competed in a 3 day Kootenay Zone race series last weekend at Panorama. The three days of competition had two Slalom races and two Giant Slalom races. Athletes persisted through weather delays and a new format that saw them race two (two runs per race) Slalom races in one day.
Red Mountain Racers had numerous top ten finishes and several podium results.
Paige Purcell: 1st and 3rd Slalom
Finley Smith: 3rd Slalom
Dylan McDowell: 2nd Giant Slalom
Jennifer Cerello: 2nd Giant Slalom
Congratulations to all athletes who raced and a big thank you to coaches Mike and Kole for supporting our athletes
