This past weekend was a busy one for the Revelstoke Ski Club. Our FIS racers were in Panorama for a Keurig Cup series, with two GS and two slalom races.

On the first day of competition Emily Unterberger was on the podium, with a third place in GS.

“I’m pretty happy with this result,” Unterberger said. “I was confident with my skiing before the race and knew I was capable of a top-three finish.”

Emily also came in seventh in the second GS race, and 11th in one of the slaloms.

Team-mate and FIS rookie Mitch Smith was 14th in one of the slalom races, and 19th in a GS.

“This weekend was a challenge,” Smith said. “The competition is tough — this is a good field of boys. Neither my results nor my skiing are where I wanted them to be but I’m looking forward to my next race.”

The next stop for both of these skiers is the U18 Nationals in Collingwood, Ontario February 10–16.

On the home front, the Revelstoke Ski Club hosted a Nancy Greene race for the North Okanagan zone on Sunday. Close to 170 young racers participated from Kamloops, Kelowna, Vernon and Golden.

Thanks to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for the great grooming and venue, and to our sponsors whose support allows us to hold these events.
