Howden and Cumming star for Apex Club

The Apex Ski Club has once again done very well in big races over the past few weeks.

The Apex Ski Club has once again done very well in big races over the past few weeks. Success was highlighted by superstar performances by Meg Cumming at the K2 Super G in Whistler Mountain,  and Reece Howden at the Western Canadian finals at Silver star Mountain. 

Last weekend Howden placed second, third, fifth and seventh in all of Western Canada at the K1, 12 to 15 year old category.  This earned him a second overall in slalom, giant slalom, and combined. A remarkable effort by the 12-year-old who hails from Chilliwack but skis and trains exclusively with the Apex Ski Club. 

Cumming posted impressive results with eighth place and second for the 13-year-old age group in Whistler.  Cumming is a local with a rich history in ski racing and is showing tremendous promise to make the Apex Ski Club proud for years to come.

Others on the Apex team showed great results in the past few weeks.  At Silver Star, Elsa Knutson had some great runs with her best time in giant slalom giving her 20th in Western Canada, and Belle Grant posted impressive results with her best proving to be 32nd.  In Whistler, despite some unco-operative weather, Bryce Byrnes,  Keefer Wells, and Scott Bogle placed 44th, 47th and 52nd respectively.

The Apex Ski Club would like to thank all those who helped host the Gunbarrel Downhill a few weeks ago. 

Over 140 young athletes participated in this high-end event.  Going back to the grass roots, the Apex Ski Club is proud to have over 80 young skiers in the Nancy Greene program this season.  These skiers have a race at Revelstoke Mountain Resort on March 5 and 6.  

The club is running two spring break camps at the end of March. There is still time to get skiers involved in the Learn to Ski program.  Check www.apexskiclub.com for more information on the camps, race results, or just view some of the photo’s taken.
