BC Ski Team member Stefanie Fleckenstein (WMSC) finishes third overall for the season in the Nor-Am Cup alpine combined discipline, just 1 point back of silver medalist Nina O’Brien from the US Ski Team. USST member and World Cup veteran Megan McJames won the season-long series. Fleckenstein was second to O’Brien in the U21 category. “Its been an exciting year, racing Nor-Ams this year, starting in Jackson and Copper Mountain, before moving to Panorama and then back east to Quebec and Lake Placid," said Fleckenstein. “I’m really happy with my alpine combined and super-G results. Ryan, Nick and PL (Jazic, Cooper and Dumoulin) have been great this year getting me ready for these races, and I also would like to thank the BC Team sponsors who made attending all of these races possible.”  Fleckenstein currently sits 9th in the overall with 2 more tech races to go in Vail Colorado Mar 17th and 18th.

CAST member Jack Crawford (WMSC) finished 2nd in the Alpine Combined to USST’s Erik Arvidsson, with University of Denver’s Erik Read in 3rd in a tight series. Only 15 points separated the podium.

CAST veteran Candice Crawford finished 3rd in the SG discipline, with McJames finishing 2nd and USST member Anna Marno taking the crown. Fleckenstein finished 5th overall in SG, and was 2nd U21 behind USST’s Breezy Johnson in 4th.

Jack Crawford matched sister Candice’s SG result, in 3rd, with CAST teammate Tyler Werry finishing second and Arvidsson taking that title as well to go with his World Junior DH crown. Crawford noted “I’m pleased with the result in my 2nd year racing on the NorAm circuit. I’m disappointed that we didn’t get to race today, but the season series has been fun. I’m now going to shift my focus to the remaining GS and SL races before heading up to Whistler for the Canadian Championships next week.”

Breezy Johnson took the Downhill crown by 10pts over CAST’s Valerie Grenier, the current World Junior DH champion. USST’s Cecily Decker captured the final podium spot.

The final speed series races were contested on the famed Aspen DH track, site of the 2017 World Cup finals. The warm trend that has been prevalent at some many races this year continued at Aspen, and the course was challenging for both DH and SG. Tuesday’s final SG was cancelled after an overnight snowfall left the track un-race-able. The series now switches to tech events with the ladies racing 1 GS and 2 SL at Vail and the men finishing their NorAm season at Aspen. The current overall NorAm standings, including all disciplines, has Megan McJames in 1st with Canada’s Valerie Grenier and Candice Crawford in 2nd and 3rd. On the men’s side, CAST’s Erik Read leads teammate Jack Crawford with Erik Arvidsson in 3rd.
