Ready, set, go! Teams from Fernie, Kimberley, Red Mountain, Whitewater, Windermere, and the Yukon were ready to hit the slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort over the weekend.

The Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST) held a Teck Zone Race on January 9, 10, and 11. Heading down Emily’s Run was the largest number of competitors at a FAST race ever! 130 kids between the ages of 10 and 18 competed in the slalom and giant slalom races. The three day event saw amazing results despite the challenging weather conditions.

The competitors enjoyed a fun banquet Saturday evening to finish off the weekend, where awards were presented by Nic Milligan of Teck.
