FLASH QUOTES:

Asher Jordan (WMSC) earned U18 bronze in Thursday's slalom: "I knew if I skied my best, then I would be competing. There were a couple of mistakes, but I worked thru them. The snow is soft and weather is warm, but it was dry and the Red crew is working hard for this race! It's always fun to be around the provincial team guys, I enjoy racing with them.‎"

Kristina Natalenko (Grouse Tyee/VST) finished 3rd overall in Thursday's GS, good enough for U18 gold: "My goal was not focusing on results. It was just me, the course and having fun with it. The snow conditions were very unique, it required being easy on your edge. I focused on not jamming at the top on my turn, It seemed to work for the most part. Friday's GS conditions were perfect. Hard snow in the morning with a nice flowing rhythm in the course. Second run, everyone cooperated to make the best of the best snow. Coaches and volunteers salted the course and made it an amazing race."

Dominic Unterberger (BCST/Revelstoke Ski Club) was third on Thursday's SL podium and climbed to the top step in Friday's slalom race: "Pretty happy with the outcome of today, always nice to be on the top step of the podium. Hopefully it's the last time I have to learn this lesson, but simple skiing is always going to be fastest for me. I'm looking forward to the next couple days of GS racing down here in Rossland."

Nick Cooper (BCST Head Coach): "Dom skied well today, especially through the middle section on the second run. Once I saw those turns I knew he had it in the bag. I'm glad he got the win today by such a large margin, and hope this SL confidence can carry into Nor-Am finals for him!"
