Killington, VT (December 1, 2019) - Things heated up on the second day of the Audi FIS World Cup in Killington, Vermont. The women’s slalom took place in front of an even louder crowd than yesterday and the Canadian women rose to the occasion.
Roni Remme of Collingwood, ON posted one of her best results ever with a 7th place finish.
“Today I felt good, I put down some good skiing. And being able to see where I’m lining up (against the competition) and knowing there is more there.”
Even with warmer conditions, the course was icy and unpredictable.
“I barely made it down second run, it was a fight. The snow has been changing, each gate might be a little bit different, so you really had to stay ahead of it, look ahead and be on your toes."
Laurence St-Germain laid down a good first run but missed a gate and was unable to finish her second run. Veteran Erin Mielzynski missed a gate in the first run ending her chances for a spot in the second run. Amelia Smart and Ali Nillmeyer, did not qualify for the second run.
Vermont is a second home for both Ali Nullmeyer and Laurence St-Germain. St-Germain graduated from University of Vermont in May with a degree in Computer Science. Nullmeyer, who is returning from injury, attends Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont.
“It was great to ski in front of friends and family because we’re in Europe so often. The crowd was so loud and it was really awesome – definitely keeps you motivated.”
The teams next chance to tackle the technical beast will be in St. Moritz Switzerland in two weeks.
