On March 2nd and 3rd young racers from throughout northern BC tore up the slopes at Purden Ski Hill at the annual Teck North Zone race hosted by the Prince George Ski Club. The GS and slalom event welcomed about 50 racers, ages 10 to 16, from Prince George, Quesnel and Smithers.

The Prince George Ski Club used this year’s Teck North Zone competition to serve as their “test event”, leading up to the Teck U14 Provincials. The club will host 160 U14 athletes from across the province March 15-17 at Purden Ski Village.

The Prince George Ski Club gratefully acknowledges title/series sponsor TECK, as well as our own season sponsors – Central Builders, RBC, Westcana Signs & Graphics and Royal LePage.
