From Coach Trevor:
Attention Masters racers. Please meet Steve Hatch at the BWSC club cabin at 8:45AM . This 2 day training camp will focus on short radius turns and will involve slalom drill courses. Slalom skis will work best and any slalom armor would also help.
Day one will start with basic stance and balance reminders and work towards slalom turn sequence coordination. Racers can expect to build into slalom stubbie gates and full size gates depending on ability. Helmets mandatory.
Each day will run from 8:45AM to 2:45PM both Saturday and Sunday. The BWSC Club Cabin will be used as the meeting spot and for watching video.
This weekend the Finals of the Western Canada Ski Cross Series were hosted by Big White and the Big White Ski Club on the TELUS Park ski cross course. Big White was the final stop in a series of races across the West for athletes ranging from U12 and older. The TELUS Park ski cross track consists of natural and artificial features such as banked turns, doubles, rollers and wootangs. What truly set’s the sport apart from other skiing disciplines is the fact that there are four skiers competing in the track at the same time. This exciting sport made it’s Olympic debut at the Winter Games in Vancouver in 2010.
Approximately 100 young athletes from BC, Alberta and Washington including the host team, Big White Ski Club, raced on the exceptional track with a number of podium finishes. Course training took place on Friday while racing commenced on Saturday and continued until Sunday afternoon and offered some great spectator entertainment. Ned Ireland from the Canadian Ski Cross Team was on hand to present the awards.
Leading off the Big White Ski Club this weekend was Kiera Swift who won a gold and silver in the U16 category. In the U14 women’s category, Shayna Little also won a gold and a silver while Liv Willoughby made the top eight placing 5th and 6th and Lola Gulyas placed 7th. The U14 Men also saw another two racers from Big White on the podium. Finley Cashin won a gold and a silver while Benjamin Hare also took gold and bronze while Simon Yanow placed 6th.
In the U12 women’s category, Kael Oberlander struck gold twice while Tabitha Taylor and Taryn Schrock both won silvers and Reese Swift was also on the podium with a bronze. Other top 8 finishers included Samantha Hveding (6th) and Erika Hveding (8th). The U12 Men also saw another two racers from Big White in the top eight: Callum Sutton-Macmillan placed 6th while Naude Eduan placed 7th.
Flynn Seddon and the Telus Park crew did an amazing job with the track while Mikey Tachuk from Big White Telus Park best demonstrated this with his awesome video:
