Lightning Creek Ski Club hosted Teck U12, U14, U16, U18 Zone Races at Troll Mountain, January 22 & 23, 2022

Everyone agreed it was a great “Welcome Back to Racing” weekend for the North Zone clubs and families. Saturday’s busy schedule included a two-run combined GS race for all competitors, as well as an exciting two-run night Slalom on “The Face”. On Sunday, racers took part in a Paneled Dual Slalom competition. The weather cooperated, the volunteers were amazing and the kids were smiling! We raced GS under the sun and were proud to pull off our first night Slalom under the new lights at Troll Resort.

We also held a rip-roaring Dual Slalom on Sunday, with 10 teams of 6 athletes each – first across the line, photo-finishes all day long. The kids made new friends, reconnected with old friends and left the ski hill feeling exhausted and renewed at the same time. Thank you Teck and BC Alpine for the awesome new race kit – it made everything look really fancy!
