On January 22 & 23, for the first time in 2 years, Red Mountain Racers were delighted to welcome teams from the Kootenay Zone to the TECK U14, U16 Zone Race! Alpine Clubs were represented by Fernie, Golden Kicking Horse, Black Dogs, Kimberly, Windermere Valley, Whitewater, and of course Red Mountain.

The race took place on the Legacy Training slope on RED Mountain, and the slope held up well for race day. Athletes raced two full days, with a 2-run combined time GS Saturday and a 2-run combined time slalom on Sunday. Both days were a challenge with fog holds, but the athletes rallied and attacked the course fearlessly.

Thank you to our volunteers, both from Red Mountain and visiting hills! It was wonderful to see so many happy faces and to see our friends again.

Congratulations to all athletes, most of whom had not raced in two years – the camaraderie and energy were electric!!!
