Local Rossland cross-country skiers had a good showing at the 28th Annual Black Jack Loppet and Kootenay Cup #5 ski races which were held last weekend.

Black Jack Ski Club hosted the event, which is in its 28th year.

Skiers from the area, as well as the Okanagan, Washington and Montana made there way to Rossland to compete in the two day event.

Saturday’s loppet race was a mass start skate race with distances of up to 30 km.

The Black Jack Club Champion trophies were captured by Kelly Geisheimer, for the women with a time of 1h45m34s for 30 km, and Aaron Scott, for the men, who skied the 30 km distance in 1h40m25s. The junior club trophies were awarded to Sage Robine for the girls and Daniel Merlo for the boys.

On Sunday, the Kootenay Cup began with an individual start classic race and it was well attended by young Black Jack skiers.

It was also the final race of this season’s Kootenay Cup series. The Black Jack Ski Club earned the most points in the series to win the cup. The cup can be viewed at Rich Thorpe cabin until the next series is over.
