Hallie MacLachlan, Fernie resident and BC Women’s Ski Team and Fernie Alpine Ski Team member picked a good time to go on a roll.

After a bit of a frustrating and busy year on the J1 FIS circuit Hallie has now started to turn things around with some strong podium finishes. That being a Bronze medal in Super G, a fifth place in GS and a 15th finish in Slalom at the J1 Nationals in Whistler BC, placing her in the top 10 in Canada in her age group.  “Yes it feels good to finally put some finishes together this past weekend and get back on the podium,” said MacLachlan. “I feel I have been skiing well, but have just not had the ability to put it all together.  I had some strong finishes lately so I am hoping to build on this to the end of the season.”

Finishing in the top 10 at J1 Nationals has secured her entry into the Senior Nationals in Quebec later this month.

“It’s exciting to be off to Quebec and have the opportunity to race against our National Team members.  I’ve never been to Quebec before so it should be fun,” she said.

Prior to Seniors, the BC Women’s Team is entered in some Nor Am races in the Laurentians, and then on to Quebec City for Nationals.

“This has certainly helped my confidence and I hope to ski well in Quebec. Thanks to everyone in Fernie for your support,” she said.
