Parksville boarder takes first

More than 50 freestyle snowboarder from across the province visited Mount Washington for two provincial competitions.

More than 50 freestyle snowboarder from across the province visited Mount Washington Alpine Resort recently for two B.C. Snowboard Provincial Series Slopestyle competitions.

The event was in jeopardy due to a lack of snow, however mid-January accumulations allowed it to go ahead.

Although the conditions weren’t ideal, the competition made things all the more interesting.

Parksville’s Jacqueline Monette-Warren won first place in the U19 women’s event, while Lukas Bergvinson of Courtenay placed second in the men’s U13 category and Markus Bergvinson of Courtenay placed third (U15).

Monette-Warren, who used to live in Parksville and train at Mount Washington, will be heading to the Canada Games later this month as a member of the B.C. Snowboard team.

She trains in Whistler and is currently a member of the B.C. Development Team.
