Conditions were ideal this past weekend, with blue skies and perfect snow at the Salmo Ski Hill Nancy Greene West Kootenay E1/E2 Zone Race.

More than 40 athletes from the Whitewater Ski Team paired up against competitors from the Red Mountain Racers, Summit Lake Ski Team, Phoenix Racers and the Salmo Ski Team.

Whitewater has built on the momentum of year over year improvements under the guidance of head coach Dylan Henderson, posting their strongest Nancy Greene results of the year.

Whitewater teams captured a first place, two second places and one third place finish. Skiers who placed in the top include Ohia Wintraub, Avery Shea, Yael Oosthuizen, Arlo Henderson, Yashua Poitras, Brianna Marcoux and Conrad Swetland.

This weekend the Whitewater Ski Teams head off in three directions with the K1 team racing in Fernie, the K2 team racing at Apex, and the Nancy Greene teams racing at Summit Ski Hill near Nakusp.
