Timberland ski club hosts Nancy Greene races

The Timberland Alpine Ski Club hosted its first Nancy Greene Ski League race in 15 years Saturday at Mt. Timothy Ski Area.

The Timberland Alpine Ski Club hosted its first Nancy Greene Ski League race in 15 years Saturday at Mt. Timothy Ski Area.

Timberland racers hosted Lightning Creek, based out of Troll Mountain in Quesnel, and Prince George for the event, which saw participants compete in slalom, jump and a radar race.

Making things challenging for skiers, however, was Mother Nature as 15 centimetres of fresh snow fell throughout the day adding much more difficulty to the race courses.

“There was so much snow I think it was hard,” said Timberland Alpine Ski Club co-ordinator Tera Grady. “The visibility was poor and there’s more snow on the course so there’s more obstacles for the skiers — especially on the radar it slowed them down. But everybody enjoyed the snow and the free skiing.”

Grady thanked the some 30-plus volunteers who helped make sure the day ran smoothly.

“We needed every single one of them,” she said.

“It was a big job. We had 14 people just on the slalom race. It was a good day. Everybody had a really great time and the fresh powder was enjoyed by all.”

After the races, awards and medals were presented inside the Mt. Timothy day lodge.
