Hemlock Ski Team stares down poor conditions and strong competition

Solid performances by the junior U16 racers on the provincial race circuit

Despite having no home ski hill to train on this season, the Hemlock Ski Team continues to have solid performances by their junior U16 racers on the Provincial race circuit, while competing against older and more experienced racers.  Last weekend at Whistler Mountain, the Hemlock Ski Team raced in the 36th Annual Bob Parsons Memorial Cup, which is a speed event consisting of both Downhill and Super G events.  Although 8 of the 12 race events were cancelled due to rain and poor snow conditions, the Race Organizing Committee was able to run two Super G races for the ladies and two Super G races for the men.

The complete results for the Hemlock Ski Team are as follows:

In Sunday’s Super G race, Katrina Voss (Port Moody) placed 13th and Megan Kardoes (Abbotsford) placed 31st in the ladies U16 group out of 56 entrants from across BC and Alberta.

In Monday’s Super G race, Katrina Voss (Port Moody) placed 18th and Megan Kardoes (Abbotsford) placed 30th in the ladies U16 group out of 56 entrants from across BC and Alberta.

Hemlock Resort is located 45 minutes east of Mission and overlooks Harrison Lake. The Hemlock Ski Club provides ski racing opportunities for kids from 4 and up. For more information about the Hemlock Ski Club and its ski racing program, please visit the ski club website at www.hemlockskiclub.com.
