First SkiMo race in the Pass
About a dozen competitors donned their skis, their skins and their avalanche gear on Sunday, March 11 to participate in the first SkiMo race to ever be held in Crowsnest Pass. The race debuted at the Pass Powderkeg Ski Lodge and took skiers through some of the hill’s most scenic terrain, accented by the warm temperatures of a beautiful bluebird day. The top three racers in the men’s category were Noah Schuh in first, Jeff Smith in second and Alec Chisholm in third. In the women’s category, the top three were Briar Lowe-Wylde, Susan Lowe-Wylde and Stephanie Crowshoe & Kara Kulak. In the split-board category, the winner was Dale Wadstein.
