Mollie Jepsen
Whistler Mountain Ski Club alumnus Mollie Jepsen, shown here at the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games, Started this season off with three medals including 2 bronze and a silver.

After taking two bronze medals in Super G in the first two para-alpine races in nearly two years due to the pandemic early last week, Whistler’s Mollie Jepson continued her hot start to the season by wrapping up the World Cup in Steinach am Brenner, Austria with a silver medal in Giant Slalom.

On Friday, Dec. 17, Jepsen continued her winning ways with a gold in giant slalom at a Para-Alpine World Cup in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Jepson, who hasn’t competed in a World Cup since January of 2020, has now won nine medals across her last four World Cup stops including four golds, three silvers and two bronze. 

Meanwhile in freestyle, after starting the season with a 16th place finish in Ruka, Finland, Whistler’s Sofiane Gagnon was able to climb up the rankings, settling into a seventh-place finish—making her the top Canadian woman at the World Cup in Idre Fjäll, Sweden.

Next stop on the circuit for Gagnon is Alpe d’Huez, France later this week.
