Whitaker and Hatch, both from the Silver Star Ski Club, finished one-two in the men's GS with Beauregard and Rey, from the Whistler Mountain Ski Club (WMSC), and as well Bob Switzer, not far behind. Switzer dominated the large 65-69 category.

Perfect race conditions and great organization made the Masters event a success with many local participants as well as some from the Interior and Vancouver. Wendy Morrison, from WMSC, led the women in the first GS run. Unfortunately for Morrison she caught an edge at the top of the second course, resulting in an as yet undetermined knee injury. Wendy Harrison, also of WMSC and one of the events organizers, put two fine runs together to finish the GS day as the fastest woman. The slalom had everyone puffing – 52 gates later some pretty amazing times were recorded with Jeff Hatch again edging out the pack. Kari Firstbrook led the women.

A pair of Atomic Skis were given away each race day along with lots of other great prizes. Thanks to Wendy Harrison & all her volunteers, the Events Department at Whistler Blackcomb, and of course Atomic, Gabel, & all our sponsors for their generosity and support.
