Apex Ski Club had a strong showing during the K2 under-16 provincials ski championship.

Meg Cumming earned the best results winning the grand slalom on the first day and taking second on day three.

“She was pretty good,” said ASC coach Jorgen Anderson.

Others who performed well were Elsa Knutson, Reece Howden and Belle Grant. Knutson placed eighth in one of her events then missed a gate in another. She still ended up top 10 in the province.

“Reece Howden did really well,” said Anderson, of his 11th place finish. “That was pretty good because he’s a first -year.  Elsa is a first year as well.”

Anderson was very pleased with all his skiers, which at this stage is important. All of the clubs skiers impressed Anderson, especially Grant, who completed all her runs. Anderson couldn’t help but talk about Cumming.

“To have Meg Cumming  win the GS is pretty cool at home,” he said.

The next event for the club is at Panorama in Invermere on March 2.
