Four Hemlock Ski Team members raced against the best K1 level (11-12 years) skiers in B.C. at the 2014 BC Winter Games. The Games were held at Silverstar Ski Resort near Vernon February 24 to 26. Katrina Voss of Port Moody had the best finish for the team when she placed 23rd out of 50 skiers in the inaugural K1 Ski Cross race. Accompanying Katrina on the ski team were Jason Forster of Coquitlam, Megan Kardoes of Abbotsford, and Lena Liljedahl of Port Moody.

Additional highlights for the team included joining the other 1,400 athletes for the parade into the Opening Ceremonies, watching the torch being lit and being part of a mini-Olympic style sports event that showcased the best athletes in the province.

Hemlock Resort is celebrating its 42nd year as a ski resort and is proud to be a host venue for the upcoming 2014 BC Winter Games. For more information about the Hemlock Ski Club, its Nancy Greene program or its ski racing program, visit www.hemlockskiclub.com.
