KOLE HARLE HAS been enjoying much success on the ski slopes this year.

Mount Washington ski racers up to speed

Island contingent gets downhill in a hurry at U16 alpine championships

 

 

 

Whistler Mountain Ski Club played host to the Super G/speed portion of the U16 Provincial Alpine skiing championships on Feb. 15-17, and Mount Washington Ski Club athletes were up to speed.

The race hill was very steep, the courses were challenging and fast and it was gut-wrenchingly icy.  Add to that, the competitive field was tough…very tough.  All but one of the Mount Washington racers are in their first year of the U16 category and they had some impressive results!

The Super G Event is the next best thing to the downhill event and these athletes came barreling down the mountain at speeds in excess of 90 km/h. The team loved the speed and the airtime of the double jump about half way down the course.

Kole Harle of Campbell River had another strong showing placing in the top 20 in each of his three SG races and top five for his age in the province.  Keegan McCooey of Cumberland also had two incredible top 25 finishes, top eight for her age in the province.

Another highlight of the weekend was the skier cross.  Athletes were grouped into teams and Kole Harle of Campbell River led his team to a silver place and Liam Gilchrist of Nanaimo led his team to a third place bronze.

Cole Anderson, Maja Nymann and Logan Frame of Campbell River also had solid results at this provincial championship, results that have qualified them to attend the CanAm Western Canadian/USA Championships to be held in Panorama resort next weekend.

The Mt. Washington Ski Club focuses on building youth one turn at a time.  The club provides a family oriented environment in which members make friends, develop a passion for Alpine Skiing and Alpine Ski Racing, and achieve excellence in a sportsmanlike culture.
