Masters strike Ross’s Gold 

Close to 50 skiers took part in the annual Masters Recreational Race Series on Sunday, Feb. 6, with races in both the sport and race categories taking their turns on the giant slalom course on Ross’s Gold.

Most of the competitors are using the event as training for the Appleton Rum Peak to Valley Race, which was rescheduled for March 11-12.

The weather was still unsettled with a few flurries in the morning, but the conditions were hard and fast.

The next Masters race, a slalom on the Upper Dave Murray, tales place on Sunday, Feb. 20. You can register in advance at any Whistler-Blackcomb Ski School Sales or Guest Relations location until 10 a.m. on race day. Competitors must be 19 years old, and all participants are eligible to win a pair of Atomic skis. Karin Kafkova won the skis on Sunday.
