January 13th and 14th saw the first Kootenay Zone Race of the 2018 ski season hosted by RED Mountain Resort and the Red Mountain Racers. The races took place at the Legacy Training Centre which proved to be race-ready despite mother nature providing a little extra snow! It was a terrific weekend of racing, with teams from Lake Louise, Fernie, Kimberley, Kicking Horse, Whitewater, Red Mountain and the Yukon attending. 

Saturday there were three slalom races for the U14 athletes and 2 slalom races for the U12's.  There was a great group of volunteers ensuring the courses ran smoothly for all athletes. After a full day of racing the athletes attended a banquet and awards ceremony with presentations by local Teck representative Tammy Salway. While the athletes enjoyed their dinner the parents, coaches and volunteers headed to the top floor of the historic Red Mountain Day Lodge to enjoy the appreciation gathering hosted in Rafters Bar.  

Sunday presented a fantastic day of giant slalom racing for the U14 athletes with 3 races being completed with good visibility. For the U12 athletes the fog seemed to roll in just as they were to begin both of their races. Despite this we saw some very talented athletes flying down the course and taking to the podium. 

Our athletes are eagerly awaiting the next zone race which will take them to Kicking Horse. A big congratulations to all those who qualified for the BC Games and best of luck in all your races this season!
