Bull Mountain Ski Area to host Elementary Ski Tournament this weekend

Nine Jackrabbit members from the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club attended the Quesnel Elementary School Races this past weekend.

Held at the Hallis Lake Cross-Country Ski Club, the races saw competitors aged five to 14 attend where participants took part in three events: classic technique, free technique relay and double-cross downhill sprint.

The WLCCSC’s Jackrabbits picked up the overall high point total and skied away with the Gold Pan Trophy, which will be proudly hung in its warming hut at Bull Mountain. Local skiers, meanwhile, also brought home several individual medals.

Coaches said racers had a fantastic time and appreciated the great hospitality from the Quesnel Ski Touring Club.

Members of the WLCCSC are also looking forward to welcoming racers from Quesnel and 100 Mile House this weekend when they host their annual Elementary Ski Tournament at Bull Mountain beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday.
