Peter Stubbs finished the 2012/13 freestyle ski season as the top male mogul skier for B.C. with a first-place ranking for the season and winning the Provincial Mogul Grand Prix award.

The Comox Valley skier had an outstanding season with many personal bests. He narrowly missed the podium at the Canadian Junior Nationals recently held at Apex Resort, posting a fourth-place finish in both single moguls and dual moguls in a field of 24 skiers.

Stubbs went on to take two gold medals at the B.C. Timber Tour Championships at Silver Star in single and dual moguls on March 22-24.

Stubbs finished his season at the Canadian Senior National Mogul Championships at Val St Come, Quebec, at the end of March.

Competing against Canada’s best mogul skiers, Stubbs laughs and says he had a great day; “I beat Olympian Alexander Bilodeau in my single mogul run.” Bilodeau landed back seat off the first jump and was deducted by the judges for the error, finishing 39th.

Stubbs said it was a tough course, and warm weather and mushy snow made it a challenge for every skier. Stubbs said his turns were just not there as he finished 22nd in a field of 45 skiers.

After more than 140 days on snow, two Nor-Ams, one Canadian Selection, one Canadian Series, two B.C. Timber Tour Events, one Junior National and one Senior National, Stubbs is done skiing for this year.

 

“It’s time to hit the books and get my Grade 12 finished,” he said. Stubbs says his teachers and school have been very supportive during the season but now it’s countdown to graduation.
