Athletes from 13 British Columbia Clubs met at Kimberley Alpine Resort from February 7th to 10th for round two of the U16 Teck Open Series Speed Camp and Super-G. There were 58 ladies and 59 men who participated in both the camp and the races. This was an introduction to the world of speed for many on the famous Dreadnaught Speed Track. Lots of BIG smiles all around.
Mother Nature was not cooperative and the temperatures were in the high minus teens to the low minus twenties. When the wind was added to these temperatures, it made for challenging conditions for all. The ski racing community must be a hardy lot, as there were never any complaints, everyone just ‘layered-up’. A big thank you to all those volunteers, and to Kimberley Alpine Resort who worked hard to make it all happen!
