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.
