The Jasper U10 racers battled the elements over the past 2 weekends, overcoming freezing cold temperatures and highway closures , to compete in the Jasper Junior Olympics on March 1st and 2nd , and the Linda Putnam Memorial Race in Panorama on March 8.
At the JJO’s, parents were sensational in offering support and encouragement to the young skiers; carrying coats and hand warmers, buying endless rounds of hot chocolate, and cheering from the sides! As well, many thanks to the parents who volunteered on the course in –30 temperatures! From a racing perspective, the coaches did an outstanding job of managing the kids in the cold, and the kids had great results that they should be very proud of, with many top ten finishes, and a couple of 3rd place podiums!! The Jasper Team also secured an incredible 2nd place in the team Event! Well done Jasper U10’s
