Kokanee race series off to a fast start 

Judging by the age range and abilities exhibited at the opening Kokanee Valley Race Series giant slalom on Dec. 20, racing must get into your blood.

Skiers and boarders as young as 19 and as old as their early 70’s took part in the race, which also drew a core of World Cup legends – e.g. Rob Boyd – and World Cup hopefuls – e.g. Jamie Finlayson.

And if you thing that blood thins a little with age, check out Bob Switzer’s time in the Men’s 60 to 69 race.
