February 10 & 11, 2024 – Over the weekend, TSC teams showcased their prowess in thrilling competitions. From Alpine Skiing’s successful outings at Snoqualmie Pass to Nordic Skiing’s domination at the BC Cup #2 in Whistler, both teams demonstrated remarkable skill and determination setting the stage for a remarkable competition season ahead.

Alpine Skiing

This weekend, UBC Alpine competed at Snoqualmie Pass in Washington at the fourth and final NWCSC qualifier. Both the Men’s and Women’s teams had incredible turnout with all the men making it into the top 20 on both days. Congratulations to the Men’s team for their fourth overall placement on both days and the Women’s team for placing fifth overall on Saturday and Sunday. Huge shout out to Emma Lam for her first race this season and 17th place on Sunday. Another huge shout out to Samuel Agerskov on placing 9th in his first-ever slalom race! With warm and sunny conditions on Saturday and snowy and chilly conditions on Sunday, both teams had lots of fun while successfully finishing the qualifying races for this competition season. The teams will be heading to the Western Regional Championships in the following weeks to compete for a spot at the National Championships in Lake Placid, NY!

Nordic Skiing

15 athletes crushed the BC Cup #2 in Whistler, B.C. For the 10km classic race on Saturday, UBC swept the podium with 9 of our athletes coming top 3. Congrats to Paige, Maggie, and Isaac for coming first in their categories on both races! UBC killed it again on Sunday for the 7.5km skate race, resulting in 8 podium finishes.
