Katrina Voss is now ranked second among the U16 female racers in all of B.C.

Podium finish for Hemlock skiers

Katrina Voss climbs to second in the province after Grouse race

Competing against the entire provincial field on a stormy day last week, Katrina Voss of Port Moody won two silver medals and a bronze medal in the three slalom races at Grouse Mountain.

The Hemlock Ski Team member is now ranked second among the U16 female ski racers in all of B.C.

Her teammate Lena Liljedahl, also a Port Moody product, competed at the event with a personal best finish of 27th.

“It’s been very cool to watch our U16 girls Lena and Katrina work hard and improve this winter, especially Katrina with her three podiums at Grouse against the top kids in the province,” said Rob Lahti, program director and head coach for Hemlock—and former Canadian racer 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 Hemlock Ski Club and its ski racing program, visit the ski club website at www.hemlockskiclub.com.
