Quesnel skiers took aim at the top positions in the biathlete BC Cup last weekend, and their aim was true.

The Cariboo Ski Touring Club sent seven skiers south to Whistler to take part in the weekend competition, Jan. 11-12. Saturday skiers took part in the sprint race, with the mass start taking place on the Sunday.

Whistler received 50 cm of snow on Friday night, and another 25 cm on Saturday, making it impossible for the groomers to keep up.

The athletes had to plow through several inches of deep snow, which made skiing difficult, reducing both speed and visibility.

The high winds and persistent snow fall, continued to challenge the athletes with their shooting.

BC Cup #2 is scheduled for February 1 and 2, in Prince George.

Sprint Race – Saturday, Jan 11/14

Anni Kurta                          Junior Girl            1st Place

Madison Roll                     Senior Girl           3rd Place
