Valentines GS brings a crowd 

Love wasn’t the only thing in the air on Valentine’s Day. Halfway through the eighth race of the Kokanee Valley Race Series calendar close to 70 racers turned out for a giant slalom on Blackcomb, with racers enjoying mild temperatures and hard-packed conditions on Gandy Dancer/Ross’ Gold.

The next event is a super G on Blackcomb on Thursday, Feb. 28. The race is open to all skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers aged 19 and older, and all participants are eligible to win draw prizes including a pair of Atomic skis.

Advance registration is available at Whistler-Blackcomb Guest Relations for $20, and day-of-race registration is $25 in the Rendezvous Lodge.
