March 2nd and 3rd 2019 - The Teck Kootenay Zone Race at Whitewater Resort, Nelson, BC has come and gone, but the excitement is yet to wind down for all those involved. 117 skiers and their families traveled from Lake Louise, Kimberley, Fernie, Rossland, and Golden to test their skills in four races spread across two days.

Saturday and Sunday both dawned clear and cold, with perfect bluebird skies and firm chalk on Bonanza—a classic Whitewater groomer easily visible from the base lodge. The slalom track started gently on a sunny bench before taking a hairpin left turn into the shadows and plunging straight down to valley bottom. A combination of gates, stubbies, and panels challenged all 117 skiers through four races, bringing U12, U14, U16, and Masters level athletes together for a weekend of sportsmanship, competition, and big fun. Behind the scenes, a small army of tireless volunteers worked ten hour shifts to solve problems, support the racers, and keep everyone safe.

Saturday night featured a kids’ awards banquet and volunteer appreciation event at The Hume Hotel in downtown Nelson. Sunday afternoon saw athletes take to a snowy podium at the Whitewater base area, where they were wreathed in medals and ribbons by the legendary Bobby Swan—who, along with Leigh Brousson, competed in the Masters category.

The Whitewater Ski Team wishes to thank the many dedicated coaches, volunteers, ski patrol, and Whitewater Ski Resort for the truly unbelievable level of support they continue to show our young athletes. Until next year, as we say on the Whitewater Ski Team—RIP IT UP!
