competition was cancelled because of the conditions, and travel was difficult
with avalanches closing the road to Revelstoke.
The 15 Whistler skiers made the best of the two remaining
single and dual moguls competitions, earning 12 medals in their respective age
categories. Athletes even broke out back flips that they had practiced on the
water ramps in the summer.
Liam Measure, 12, placed second in both single moguls and dual
Mitchell Wilson, 11, won bronze in single moguls and gold in
Sophie Mcgrogor, 12, of West Vancouver won two bronze medals.

Annik Tetreault, 16, won two silver medals.
The next event for the team is a provincial series halfpipe on Blackcomb, Jan. 23-24, which will be held in conjunction with a B.C. Snowboard Association event.
