It was all smiles for the more than 140 racers who spent the weekend at SilverStar Mountain Resort! The Vernon Ski Club hosted its annual three-day Teck Okanagan Zone Speed Camp, culminating with two fun downhill races per gender on Sunday. This popular and important training event included athletes from U12 up to U16, some from as far away as Whitehorse, Yukon. The racers pushed top speeds of 105 km per hour, battling warm, wet conditions, fog and snow on the first two days, but wrapping it all up on Sunday with perfect race-day conditions! Nearly 1,000 individual runs were trained/raced on the speed course by the end of the weekend. It was a fantastic event with amazing volunteers and super keen athletes!  Thank you to all who attended and helped out!!  We are already looking forward to Okanagan Speed Camp 2021 where we all "Feel the need, the need for speed"! ~ report submitted by Lauren Carr
