Race series continues with GS 

The Kokanee Valley Race Series continued on Feb. 28 with a two-run giant slalom on Ross’ Gold. It was a perfect race day: the sky was blue, the temperature was about —6 degrees Celsius, and the snow was hard and fast.

It was the eighth race on the 10-event schedule, but only the sixth race that was able to go on after two races were cancelled due to weather conditions at the end of January and beginning of February.

Whistler Mountain Ski Club coach Sead Causevic had a banner day, easily winning the men’s pro division then winning the draw for a free pair of Atomic skis.

The next event on the calendar is a super G on Blackcomb, March 14. Bib distribution and all-day registration will be from the top of the course, Lower Cruiser. Helmets are required for this event, as is the usual $20 entry fee.
