“There were 205 racers for two days of racing with perfect snow and cold weather conditions,” coach Bret Alumbaugh said. “The Loup kids really skied well, in particular on Sunday in the Giant Slalom where all of them placed in the top 10.

“With such a large group of athletes, the race did not get over until very late in the day. I was very impressed by how our kids skied considering how cold it was and how long they waited for their last run of the day.”
