Callaghan leads Big White skiers at Apex

A pair of top 10s at Super G event last weekend among 48 racers

Gillian Callaghan set the pace for Big White skiers with a pair of top-10 finishes at the Teck Open Super G at Apex Mountain Resort last weekend.

During the event, which featured racers aged 14 and 15 from across B.C., Callaghan placed ninth  out of 48 racers in the U16 women’s division in both Super G events.

Local racers Chloe Laidlaw (U16 women), Alex Baldassare (U16 men) and Anthony Kurkjian (U16 men’s) also turned in solid performances on both race days.

The races took place under bluebird skies on a hard packed run offering an extremely challenging course.

The highlight of the weekend for all athletes was under the lights on Saturday with the introduction of the Dual Night Slalom, where once again Gillian Callaghan found her stride and finished 10th overall.

A new addition to the event, the racers were all in agreement that it was an exciting and fun addition to the series.

 

Next up for the U16s is the CanAms at Panorama, March 17 to 20.
