Spring Fun in the Sun

John and Murray skied Crystal Rim this afternoon. They started out from the yellow gate.  Conditions varied from full-on one skate to gingerly working around some deadfall.  By all accounts, it was a great outing!  Fortune favours the Brave, so..go for it!  And remember your sunscreen!

Love the ski shorts Murray!

Biathlon Season Windup

Thanks to Coach Chris and Murray for organizing our final event of the season.  In spite of Whistler-like conditions (rain, sleet, fog, wet snow), everyone had a great time doing the biathlon balloon relay race.  There is still a TON of snow up at Telemark, so take advantage of spring skiing conditions as much as you can.  A few pictures are below – there are more in the photo album.

Second time we’ve had to shovel off the snow – it just keeps coming!  Thanks Murray for doing it this time around (and Shayne for the first time).  More snow in the forecast…

A fantastic day at Telemark, with many enthusiastic participants finding out just how fun and challenging this Olympic sport can be!

Murray notes:

It was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!  Many thanks to all who participated in our Biathlon Demo Day and it was great to see everyone racing in a Sprint competition. We apologize in advance if there are minor spelling errors in the results below.  Your enthusiasm and smiles made the day!  Through your participation today, many of you have taken that first step towards becoming full-on Biathletes.

If you were fortunate enough to have had Coach Chris Halldorson, or athletes Colton Hay or Danica Ariano help you at the range during the Demo, you’ll be excited to know that they are headed to Canmore now to compete at the Canadian National Biathlon Championships as members of Team BC.  They will be joined by two other Telemark athletes: Jasper MacKenzie and Natalie Benoit.  Watch this space for upcoming news of their accomplishments.

 

Telemark Nordic Club wishes to thank our sponsor, Crown West Steel, for their participation and for helping to keep the Telemark Biathlon Range outfitted with the very finest materials.  Also, we want to thank the Okanagan Young Professionals who raced today in the spirit of friendly competition. We salute their engagement throughout communities in the Okanagan Valley.
