Thomsen Climbs to Top of Podium at Mt. Orford Pontiac GMC Giant Slalom - BC Alpine Ski Association

BC Ski Team athlete Ben Thomsen of Invermere and the Windermere Valley Ski Club topped Sunday’s silver medal in Slalom by taking the gold Tuesday in GS. 

‘’I had a pretty smooth first run but I didn’t expect to be in the lead,’’ said Thomsen.  ‘’In the second run, the course was a lot rougher but I was able to pull it off.  GS has been a good event for me this year.’’  This puts Thomsen in first place in the overall men’s Pontiac GMC Cup standings!
