Classic slalom race on Mt. Seymour thrills athletes and spectators

Christian Callaghan (Grouse Tyee Ski Club) and Maja Woolley (Whistler Mountain Ski Club), were the individual recipients of the Enquist Slalom Trophies at this weekend’s alpine slalom races on Mt. Seymour in North Vancouver.

Steeped in annual tradition since 1936, the two-day event was the 81’st anniversary of this classic Slalom race.  Hosted by Mount Seymour Ski Club, the competition featured two slalom races (one on Saturday and one on Sunday) for young men and women aged 14-17, as well as a few Masters racers.  

Lined with snow-draped pines and shrouded in intermittent fog on Saturday and in glorious sunshine in Sunday, the spectacularly picturesque “Unicorn” run presented itself with the thrills and challenges that racers, organizers, volunteers and spectators have become accustomed to over many years of Mt. Seymour ski racing history.  Roused by the hunt for the prestigious Enquist trophies, the young alpine racers put on a breathtaking show of skills and athleticism. 

Other athletes on the podium in the U16 category included… for the men… Whistler’s Tait Jordan (Gold on Saturday), and Kieran Harley (Silver on Saturday and Gold on Sunday), as well as Grouse Tyee’s Keaton Chiu (Silver on Sunday) and Brendan Flynn (Bronze both Saturday and Sunday).   For the women, it was Whistler’s Maja Woolley (Gold both Saturday and Sunday),  Grouse Tyee’s Ksenija Kaludjecic, (Bronze on Saturday, Silver on Sunday), as well as Whistler’s Alexandra Chartrand (Silver on Saturday) and Una Brudar (Bronze on Sunday).

Retrired World Cup Slalom Ace, and former Enquist Slalom winner (1998) Michael Janyk presented awards at the post-race ceremonies.
