Our U14's race in Cypress | Feb 29 - March 1

Posted by Whistler Mountain Ski Club on Mar 05 2020 at 10:00AM PST in 2018-2019 season

The most recent event of the U14 Teck Zone race series was held last weekend, February 29 and March 1, at Cypress Mountain. Our team was greeted with sunshine and clear skies throughout the weekend, and soft-packed spring snow that made for an interesting race track.

On Saturday, the U14 of the Coast Zone raced a two-run combined time Slalom race, with Sunday’s GS race having a similar format.

U14 Lead Coach Henry Yeigh says, “Thanks to the Cypress Ski Club for hosting a successful TECK zone race this past weekend. The WMSC U14’s battled through conditions fighting through soft inconsistent snow that didn’t provide the greatest feel-good skiing experience, but this didn’t slow our athletes down! The perseverance, determination, and team spirit shown over the 2 days yielded some personal bests, showing what a great group of young people we have at the U14 level.”
