The entire FPSC team put down strong runs in a very tough Single Moguls field on Day 1. Special mention goes to Cole C. who put down to fantastic runs to secure himself 16th place an a position in the finals. After a single final run, Cole finished in 15th place. With this result, he automatically qualifies for Canadian Senior National Championships in Quebec later this month, as well as Canadian National Team Selections held in November 2019. Congratulations, Cole!!
The remainder of the team also put in a strong effort and finished as follows:
Megan E. 22nd

Day 2 kicked off with the Dual Moguls event. After a strong qualification round, Megan E., Brian B., and Cole C. qualified to move through to the knock-out round. All three athletes put down strong runs with Cole C. proceeding through to race two. After a good fight, he was just beaten to the line by a skier from Quebec.
Overall, it was a very successful weekend with all five athletes working hard and skiing some of the best runs we have seen.

Silverstar Jan 24 to 27, 2019
The course at Silverstar was very big, but all athletes took to it well. Canada Cup in an event open to all provinces and athletes have to be at a certain level to compete. There are also no age categories. This meant that our athletes were among the youngest and were competing head to head with athletes as old as 20 years!
Lucas placed 40th
Liam placed 42nd
Because of the type of competition this makes them 40th and 42nd in the whole of Canada for Slopestyle (excluding National Team athletes)!!
Big White / Apex - Jan 17 to 20, 2019
