This weekend, the Red Mountain Racers will be hosting the Teck U14 and U16 Zone GS event in Rossland.

The event features two races on Saturday and two on Sunday.

Racing in the event is Jane Andison (U14) from Rossland. Andison is undefeated this season with four wins under her belt.

Also competing is Castlegar native Heiko Ihns (U12) who has been on the podium for all four of his events, and Kristoff Panke from Davenport, Washington with three podium finishes so far.

Andison, 13, came away with a clean sweep at the Whitewater U12-U16 Zone Slalom Race in January, while Heiko Ihns, 10, won three of four races, with one silver.

Andison and Ihns headlined a stellar performance of Red Mountain Racers at the Whitewater event: 20 Red Mountain racers: 32 top 10 finishes, 9 gold medal performances, 5 silver performances, 4 bronze medal performances.

“I felt really nervous, but by the last race, I was really pumped and ready to go for it.” said Andison, and, when asked by a younger racer what it is like to be on the podium, she said: “It is a great feeling and you feel like you’ve accomplished something special.”

The Giant Slalom this weekend is Andison’s next race.  “I just want to ski as aggressively as I can.”

Danny Larrui Altadill, Gavin Patterson, Vasily Koltsov and Kristof Panke also had multiple podium finishes.

Full results are on the B.C. Alpine site.
