Snow no obstacle for KVRS

comment

One of the biggest storms of the season moved in for the start of the Jan. 14 Kokanee Valley Race Series giant slalom, but organizers still managed to get almost 60 skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers through two runs of the gates on Gandy Dancer/Ross's Gold.

It was a long, snowy course with a vertical drop of 270 metres and 35 gates. The fastest one run time was 1:16.05 by Philip Beauregard in the Pro Men category.

The next event is today, Jan. 21, a super G race on Whistler Mountain that uses the same course as the Parsons Memorial K2 race last weekend. Registration is available until 9:45 a.m. at the trailer at the top of the Garbanzo Chair.

After the Jan. 21 race the series takes a break before returning on March 11 with a giant slalom on Blackcomb. More information is available at www.whistlerblackcomb.com.
