The Sporting Life NGSL Okanagan Zone Finals took place on March 4th and 5th at Apex Mountain Resort, hosted by the Apex Ski Club. Over 140 athletes from the Apex Ski Club, Big White Ski Club, Vernon Ski Club, Revelstoke Ski Club, and Sun Peaks Alpine Club attended the event. It was a great weekend at Apex with lots of snow and ideal temperatures for racing.
On Saturday the U6 and U8 skiers competed in dual slalom races on the Okanagan Run. The conditions were good and spirits were high as the youngest athletes tackled their course. Sunday’s races, featuring the U10 and U12 skiers, were slightly more challenging due the continuous snowfall. However, thanks to the consistent effort of the volunteers, a successful race was achieved.
The Apex Ski Club would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the volunteers, and to Apex Mountain Resort for their support. Big thanks as well to all the sponsors!
