Kokanee Series on Ross’ Gold 

The second instalment of the 10-race Kokanee Valley Race Series was a fast giant slalom on Ross’ Gold on Thursday, Jan. 9. The more than 70 racers who participated made the most of the conditions to post some excellent times.

Whistler Mountain Ski Club coaches Rob Boyd, Sead Causevic, and Pierre-Luc Dumoulin were focussing on upcoming club races this week, which left the competition wide open. This week the fastest time wasn’t even in the pro categories – Rick Lewon, racing in the men’s 40 to 49 category, posted a combined time of one minutes, 27.3 seconds to win the day.

The Series continued on Jan. 16 with a giant slalom on Whistler, followed by a super-G on Blackcomb on Jan. 23.
