Whistlers Julia Vagelatos and Jennifer Bertram were strong in the Alberta Hershey Cup Series slalom events last week. Vagelatos charged her way to a gold medal on day one and a silver on day two.
On the first day, she blew away the competition, finishing more than two seconds ahead of the pack. On the second, she missed gold by less than two-tenths of a second. Bertram finished fifth on the second day.
Both skiers are products of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club.
