Qualicum Beach skier places fifth

Chris Raduy also earns a personal best time at two-day Whistler event

Qualicum Beach’s Chris Raduy came up with a personal best and two great finishes for the U-14 Mount Washington Ski Team, who were in Whistler for a two day event and raced under some tough conditions.

Raduy, who is one of seven racers on the ski team, finished in 10th place on day one of the competition, earning himself a personal best time as well. Day two saw Raduy take home an impressive fifth place finish, which was a combined two run slalom event.

Conditions were a bit tricky as there was a lot of ice amongst the man made snow on the course, but that didn’t slow Raduy and his teammates from impressing a lot of the bigger ski teams from the rest of the province.

“I am so proud of our athletes,” said coach Krystal Francisty. “With a mountain of our size and team of our size all of our athletes finished within the top 20 for each race, this is something that we should all be very proud of”.

Next up for Raduy and the rest of the U-14 Mount Washington ski team is a giant slalom event on Feb. 14 and 15.
