NGSL RACE REPORT: Vernon Ski Club/SilverStar play host to OK North U6-U12 skiers - BC Alpine Ski Association

The Vernon Ski Club was thrilled to host over 60 young skiers at the Okanagan North Nancy Greene Ski League event on Sunday, February 4th at SilverStar Mountain Resort. Although the sun didn’t manage to break through the clouds, there were a few centimeters of fresh snow awaiting these young athletes (U6 – U12). For some local kiddos this was their first NGSL event ever! Skiers were challenged on both stubbies and a timed dual slalom course at the Cloud 9 Race Centre.

Head U10 Coach Adam White did a spectacular job setting a fun course despite the difficult conditions that continue to persist this season.

The success of this race was evident in the abundance of smiling faces at the end of the runs. Participants were also treated to a delicious après of hot dogs and cupcakes, as well as a visit from SilverStar’s very own Silver Fox to cap off a perfect day of skiing.

Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the amazing volunteer community, which Vernon Ski Club is so fortunate to have supporting the club, and a big thank you to SilverStar Mountain Resort for their continued support.
