Fernie’s Snow Valley Racers made an impressive showing at a meet at Rossland’s Red Mountain last weekend, with three racers placing in the top five.

In the age 13-14 girls giant slalom race Jan. 7, Emily Brydon placed first with a time of 1:34.80, while Jenny Delich (1:38.09) and Saya Dirks-Farley (1:39.93) placed third and fourth respectively. In the age 11-12 category, Lindsay Day (1:47.48) came in third.

Head coach Max Sherwood said he was pleased with the racers’ performance.

“They were fairly nervous,” Sherwood said in an interview. “But once they got their first run under their belts they raced better.”

He added that this season’s racers are looking strong, although they’ll need more practice to make up for the Christmas break.
