Next generation of the Canadian Ski Cross Team take center stage in Calabogie Peaks

Calgary, AB (February 13, 2020) – It was an exciting couple of days for the Canadian Ski Cross Team as the NorAm circuit came back to Canada for races at Calabogie Peaks in Ontario. The competition was stiff with athletes from Canada, the US, Germany, Japan and Great Britain. The team, who were returning to the Ontario hill after races were cancelled at Gore Mountain, NY were excited to get back to competition. 

While many of the Canadian Ski Cross Team athletes are still over in Europe, India Sherret (Cranbrook, BC), Zoe Chore (Cranbrook, BC), Antoinette Tansley (Calgary, AB), Carson Cook (Edmonton, AB) and Gavin Rowell (Prince George, BC) were attacking the course on this side of the pond. The NorAm circuit is an important development opportunity for athletes looking to move up to the World Cup. The Canadian team members performed incredibly well with Chore, Sherret, Tansley, Cook and Rowell all picking up podium performances.

“The Ontario block had a lot of fun, interesting tracks on it. We have spent a lot of time on this course so it was good to have some more competition this time to keep it interesting.” said Gavin Rowell.
