What an exciting week of racing! There were four days of racing: 2 days of Slalom on the Face of Red and 2 days of GS on Back Trail, alternating between the Women and Men. This took an incredible amount of work from our volunteers and ROC – Race Organizing Committee. A huge thank you shout out to our Volunteer Coordinator Andrea McCormick for organizing a fleet of volunteers. This is not an easy job, challenged by limited volunteer numbers, yet she was able to ensure our athletes and vollies were supported and Red Mountain Racers were able to uphold our reputation of putting on another fantastic race event!

NG Year End Day at RED March 11
What an amazing end to a great season! Our year-end RED day and scavenger hunt were so much fun. Coaches awards were epic this year and the Snow Stars evaluations showed the incredible improvement made by our athletes. Thank you to the Working Group, Coaches and all the volunteers who made this happen.
Seriously, is there not a cooler name for a ski race?! Phil Patterson, our Program Director and FIS coach lead 3 of our FIS athletes in this exciting event. Congratulations for all your hard work and great results: Marcus Hamm, Reuben Demmler and Marek Krampl.

We are so happy to have Quinn continuing her recovery back here in Rossland. A huge thank you to Quinn and the Treanor family for providing the hot chocolates for our athletes at our year-end day of Nancy Greene at Red. This was a wonderful give back for all the love and support they have received from our club.
