Red Mountain will be looking for podium finishes as they get set to host the Teck Kootenay Zone Race and BC Games Qualifier this weekend.

Red Mountain Racers (RMR) will be looking for podium finishes as they get set to host the Teck Kootenay Zone Race and BC Games Qualifier this weekend.

The RMR are coming off successful events in Nakiska and Sun Peaks last weekend. Soleil Patterson claimed silver in Giant Slalom at Nakiska, while Sammie Gaul came second in GS at Sun Peaks, and Gavin Patterson finished Top 10 in Slalom at Sun Peaks as well.

This weekend’s Giant Slalom and Slalom races are part of the Teck Kootenay Race series but will also double as the BC Winter Games qualifier for racers 13-14 years old.

The racers hit the Backtrail slopes Friday to Sunday, with the first run going at 9:15 a.m. and the second runs scheduled for 12:30 p.m.

The 2016 B.C. Winter Games go in Penticton from Feb. 25-28.
