The third round of the Canadian Skimo Cup for 2009 season was hosted at the Fernie Alpine Resort.
Once again, during the Mountain Storm event a true snow storm hit the mountain which added to the overall challenge of the race.
Three days of snowing and the resort’s highest chairlift failure provided competitors with great powder skiing and many of them took tumbles and head-first falls.
The race was won by a Canadian fast man – Reiner Thoni – very closely followed by another fast charging competitors.
Women’s main race was won by Julie Matteau who moved this winter to Revelstoke to devote herself to full time ski bumming.
