Two silvers for local ski club at the Enquist slalom race at Mount Seymour

Hemlock Ski Club racers Katrina Voss and Lena Liljedahl achieved personal bests late in January at the 80th anniversary of the Enquist slalom race at Mount Seymour.

A total of 53 elite junior ski racers from southwestern B.C. participated in the oldest alpine ski race in the province on Jan. 23 and 24.

Of those racers, Voss of Hemlock won back-to-back silver medals in the two day race event.

The Port Moody native was celebrating her 16th birthday Sunday while she raced on an intermediate run called Seymour 16’s.

Her teammate Lena Liljedahl, also from Port Moody, placed 11th amongst the U16 ladies on Saturday and 12th on Sunday.

“Great skiing and training at Hemlock this winter along with hard work from the girls added up to good results for both,” said Rob Lahti, program director/head coach for Hemlock and former racer for Canada on the World Cup circuit.

The Hemlock ski club provides ski racing opportunities for children and youth from four to 18 years of age.  For more information about the club and its racing program, please visit the ski club website at www.hemlockskiclub.com.
