Saturday

We've now experiened more weather changes than I've ever encountered before. Today saw less wind but more snow. The awards were presented outdoors in driving snow.



Ten-year-old Ryan finished in third place and narrowly missed second. He's racing on twin tips and no speed suit. Seven-year-old Archie won his age group by a large margin and will compete in the Race of Champions tomorrow. Six-year-old Lauchie repeated his performance from last year winning both skiing and snowboarding. He's been using the same board since he was 3 and says he needs a new one.



I managed to finish second in my age group's Platinum Division and first place in snowboarding. I was pleasantly surprized to discover that I had the fourth fastest overall snowboard time today. I have to give a shoutout to Nate Holland who took a personal interest in every racer.
