KVRS season wraps up with dual GS 

p class=Style1>Racers went head to head on a giant slalom course Thursday, March 20 in the last Kokanee Valley Race Series event of the season, racing for pride and titles in different age groups.

The conditions were like the first race of the season in December, with new snow on the ground in the morning and more snow falling during the event. As a result, organizers decided not to have a team event after the dual giant slalom.

With both the KVRS and Masters series concluded, the race season is almost over. One of the remaining races is the annual Mum’s Mountain Classic on Blackcomb on Thursday, April 3. The theme for this year’s event is “Las Vegas”.

The cost is $35 to enter and there are five categories for the match-time race — Mums of Girls, Mums of Boys, Mums of Girls and Boys, Grandmums and Stepmums. Registration includes a morning coffee at Merlin’s, the race, lunch in the Rendezvous, and an après party at the Westin. Pre-registration is available at any Whistler-Blackcomb Guest Relations desk, and day of race registration is available for an extra $5 at Merlin’s, from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
