PANORAMA MOUNTAIN VILLAGE (Dec. 18, 2014) – BC Ski Team rookie Sam Mulligan (Grouse Tyee) wrapped up his first Nor-Am series in fine form! Wearing bib 103, Mulligan earned a second run in Friday's GS by finishing 54th in the first run. Second time down the course was even faster, landing him in 35th place overall as the best U18 in the competition.  The top BC athlete in Thursday's women's giant slalom was Stephanie Gartner (Fernie Alpine Ski Team) in 18th position.

FLASH QUOTES:

Sam Mulligan (BC Ski Team/Grouse Tyee Ski Club) – "Today I focused hard on my tactics and technical approach. The track was rough, and I wasn't perfect, but I skied well overall and I'm happy with my progress in GS. I have learned a lot from my first Nor-Ams and I'm excited for more to come!"

Nick Cooper (Head Coach, Men's BC Ski Team) – "All the boys did a good job this week. It's been a battle, but the skiing and results are both starting to come. Sam was great today in an insanely deep field!"
