Three members of the Hemlock ski team participated in the BC Alpine sanctioned ski races for K1 racers aged 11 and 12 this past weekend at Mount Washington Ski Resort, which was a qualifying race for the upcoming BC Winter Games at Silver Star Mountain Resort.  Katrina Voss of Port Moody had the best finish for the team when she placed 12th out of 44 skiers in the third Giant Slalom (GS) race.

Accompanying Katrina on the ski team was Megan Kardoes of Abbotsford, BC and Lena Liljedahl of Port Moody. The solid effort of the ski team has earned them berths at the BC Winter Games where they will join their teammate Jason Forester of Coquitlam, BC.

“I was very impressed with Katrina’s performance as this was her first K1 race ever and she was racing against many elite skiers from other clubs in southwestern BC. Twice she was the third fastest junior K1 racer,” stated Head Coach Kelly Blair.  “As well, Lena showed great improvement in her ski racing by putting in five solid races on a course that was very hard and icy”.

Hemlock Resort, located 45 minutes east of Mission overlooking Harrison Lake, is celebrating its 42nd year as a ski resort.  For more information about the Hemlock Ski Club and its ski racing program, please visit the ski club website at www.hemlockskiclub.com.
