TECK RACE REPORT: Sun Peaks hosts U12-U14 Okanagan GS & SL - BC Alpine Ski Association

Sun Peaks Alpine Club hosted the Teck Okanagan U12/U14 Zone race on January 21-22 at Sun Peaks Resort. In spite of a slow start to the ski season due to variable snow conditions, the racers came out of the start gate flying!

The weekend featured GS racing on Saturday, with two one-run races for the U12s and one two-run competition for the U14s. Sunday was all about slalom, with two separate U12 runs featuring a panelled and stubby slalom, as well as a two-run slalom for the U14 racers.

Fresh snow, along with changing weather and race conditions, made for some challenging racing. The Sun Peaks volunteer race committee was up to the challenge! We owe a huge thank you to all the race volunteers.

This Teck event brought back the longstanding tradition of the Sun Peaks Racers fire pit at the race start. BBQ’ed smokies, hotdogs and beverages were once again being served to celebrate a great race weekend. Congratulations to all the racers for some impressive ski racing, having lots of fun, and being great sports!
