This last weekend was the annual Cooper Diamond Dual Slalom. This race has been an event since I was a kid. I still remember riding up the T-Bar at Cooper Spur getting ready to go Head-to-Head against my opponent. It’s a really fun race and all the kids trained hard the week leading up to it. Due to low snow pack we had to move the race to Meadows. While the conditions on Saturday were a little rough for running gates, most groups endured and then were rewarded with some powder skiing in the afternoon.
Race day was amazing. We were treated to blue skies, “very” cold temps and no wind. The race went off without a hitch before the storm came in later in the afternoon. A special thanks to Cooper Spur Race Team for putting on an excellent race as well as treating us to burgers, dogs and refreshments at the finish line. Way to go CSRT!
So many racers had good days today, some had personal bests, others showed that they are using what they’re learning in drills and training and then putting it all together on race day.
