Timberland Ski Club members were at Troll Mountain for the mountain’s Family Day Nancy Greene Festival.

Fifteen brave racers and four coaches attended the event.

“These athletes and coaches were fearless,” said Lisa Young, TSC director and co-ordinator. “The temperatures read -32 C in Quesnel when we left our hotel at 7:30 a.m. to head up to Troll. Thankfully, the race co-ordinators pushed the start times back an hour so the hill could be in full sunlight before the kids took to the slopes.”

Young said it turned out to be a fantastic two days of skiing with stellar results from TSC racers at the event.

“Our club brought home 23 medals from the festival, which featured more than 80 skiers from Prince George, Quesnel and Williams Lake,” she said.

The TSC also posted fastest “speed trap” time and longest jump.
