U12 Fast Track, U14 and U16 recently returned from an exciting weekend away at the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup in Lake Louise.
U14 and U16 athletes spent Friday and Sunday at Norquay for some valuable gate training, and joined the U12 Fast Tracks at Lake Louise on Saturday for the Men's Downhill event.
Saturday was an exciting day with the Jasper athletes getting the opportunity to watch the best racers in the world in their first race of the 2013 World Cup tour. It was great to see these athletes on the world stage and to watch their incredible level of agility, fitness, technique and passion for racing. On Saturday evening, with voices hoarse from cheering on Team Canada, everyone attended the athlete's 'bib draw' at the Chateau Lake Louise. This event was a fantastic opportunity for the Jasper team to meet the top skiiers in the world, with caps and posters being signed and photos being taken with the racers! The delicious food at the event was also enjoyed by the kids and parents alike!
On Sunday the U12 Fast Tracks were full of inspiration from the previous day and had a great morning training, with the afternoon free to enjoy watching the Men's Super G event.
It was a great weekend away for the team, and I'm sure everybody left feeling inspired for the coming race season! More photos from this weekend are in the photo gallery...
