Schweitzer Open FIS Slalom/GS race. January 10-13

23 Jan 2015 7:00 AM | CMAC (Administrator)

This series was originally scheduled to be a SG/SG, GS/GS over 4 days are was changed and reduced to a single Slalom and 2 GS race due to low snow coverage. The mountain did an amazing job moving the race over into the heart of the ski area where the snow was hard, fast and consistent.

After a training day in the fog on Saturday, the clouds lifted on Sunday for the Slalom. Approximately 45 Canadians from the BC and Alberta regional teams, as well the ski academies put on quite a clinic for the CMAC skis to see. Even in that great competition, Alex Oseland finished 16th and Jordy Harrison finished 19th. On the men’s side, Tyler Ellis finished 21st and Peter Moe-Lange finished 33rd.

The weather got even better for Monday’s GS race, and CMAC racers took advantage of the sun! Alex Oseland skied to another solid 16th, and Talia Toland finished 25th. On the men’s side, Peter Moe-Lange finished 16th and Tyler Ellis followed in 23rd.
Tuesday, the fog was Pea-Soup, but that didn’t seem to slow our CMAC racers much. Alex Oseland was 17th and Talia Toland skied to 26th. Peter Moe-Lange was the top skier from the PNSA in 7th place. Well done P-Moe!
