Red Mountain Racers had a remarkable start to the racing season at the Kootenay Zone race in Fernie earlier this month.

RMR skiers showed consistency and perseverance despite difficult conditions that included heavy snow, rain, low visibility, and biting winds.

In the Giant Slalom U12 Girls Sage Stefani took second and Hanna Schulze third, with Emilia Hofmann taking gold in the second race.  In U12 Boys, Kristoff Panke topped the podium with Heiko Ihns close behind in second.

In U14 boys, Orion Humpherys took top spot, followed by Gavin Patterson in fourth and Mattias Hofmann sixth, while in the U14 girls, Kaysa Panke placed third, and Samantha Gaul broke through the ranks to take top spot in the first slalom on day two.

In U16 combined, Soleil Patterson aced both runs to seal her victory overall in the giant slalom.

Top 10 results were achieved also by Calix Webber, Yasmin Evans, Morgan Gash, Isaac Lunn, Logan Merringer, and Sophia Rodyakin.

Racing continued this weekend with Red hosting the first Nancy Greene Race of the season for the zone.

Kids from 4 to 14 raced their way through a dual slalom much to the delight of parents and volunteers alike.  Many racers were in the gates for the first time and it was a fun time had for all.
