It’s a busy couple of weeks for the Mount Seymour Ski Club hosting back-to-back races with the NGSL Coast Zone U8/U10 Skills Event on Sunday, February 5th and the Enquist TECK SL on February 11th and 12th.
It was touch and go on Sunday with the forecast calling for 30+ cm on the day leading up and 34cm the night before, but the club was able to endure and run a successful event. Almost 200 U8 and U10 racers compromised of the Cypress Ski Club, Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club, Helmock Ski Club and the Mount Seymour Ski Club competed against each other in a Dual Glalom, tested their speed skills in the speed trap, and learned how to fly on the jump. Overcoming the snow that Mother Nature graced the West Coast Mountains with this past week, the event was a great success uniting the clubs together and creating friendships amongst athletes.
Howard Louie the Mount Seymour Ski Club President and Craig Chen grilled up over 200 hot dogs for all the racers. Volunteers came together to put on this great event and help make it an unforgettable day for the racers. The day would not have been a success without all the volunteers, coaches and support of the Mount Seymour Ski Resort.
A big thank you has to go out to the Mount Seymour Ski Resort for providing us support for the event and working with the Mount Seymour Ski Club. They continue year after year to support the Mount Seymour Ski club and Alpine Racing.
We would like to congratulate all of our competitors and recognize our podium finishers.
