Red Mountain Racer Soleil Patterson will hit the slopes in Rossland this week

Red Mountain Racers, along with Red Resort, are hosting the U16 Provincial Championships this week. The action starts this Thursday and continues through the weekend with Slalom and Giant Slalom races on the Face of Red and Back Trail.

Featured at this event is Red Mountain’s own Soleil Patterson who comes off a stellar performance the last time she raced at Red sweeping both days of GS in late February.

Also featured are Red Mountain Academy students Liene Groeger (Germany) and Arina Rora.  Arina is representing Red Mountain Racers and is here training from Romania. She has just come back from competing in her national championships at home, with a gold in GS and a bronze in Slalom.

“The snow was really hard and fast during training on Sunday,” says Christine Andison, race organizer for this week’s event. “We are going to have some pretty outstanding racing.”

Andison said they are still looking for volunteers.

“This is a great opportunity to help out the community and also to see some very high calibre athletes competing against some very formidable homegrown talent.  If you have a day to spare starting on Thursday, I really encourage you to come out, give us a hand, and enjoy, close up, some great local athletes.”

If you can spare a day or an afternoon starting this Thursday and going to Sunday, please contact Christine Andison at andison@shaw.ca or 362-5135.

This past weekend brought to an end the Nancy Greene Ski League’s 2012/2013 season.

The final Nancy Greene race, at Phoenix Mountain, saw U10 athletes get individual results for the first time this season.  Chase Eagleton swept the U10 boys while Emelia Hoffman swept the U10 girls.  Iman Livingstone and  Finlay Kinghorn, also took podium spots in the U10 category.

Sage Stefani finished her racing season with a stellar silver medal in the U12 girls category, achieving a goal she had had all season.

All the racers had a fun day and medals were had by all. All three RMR teams, which included athletes from Rossland, Trail, Fruitvale, and Castlegar, achieved gold in the team results.
