Eleri Colon and Nathanael Ridosko represented Bear Valley at the first U14 California Challenge Series at Squaw Valley on Saturday, January 6th and Sunday, January 7th. These are the first two of six races to qualify for the U14 Regionals in Jackson Hole in March.
The race on Saturday was canceled due to weather, but the course on Sunday was fast and held up well all day. Due to the Saturday cancelation, Far West decided that each race would count as a single qualifier race (instead of the the two races each day, aggregated, to count as one qualifier).
As first year U14s, both Nathanael and Eleri represented the small and mighty Bear Valley race team, skied strong, and finished very well. Please join me in congratulating them!
