Summit Ski Club Captures
5th Club Championship in a Row!
(March 17, 2013) The Summit Ski Club captured its 5th Manitoba Cup Club Championship in a row this weekend. The 2013 Manitoba Cup Provincial Finals races were held at the Asessippi Ski and Board Area, near Inglis, Manitoba.
A total of four races were held over the weekend, ending with Sunday's two run GS race, which proceeded under some very winterlike conditions.
Many Summit athletes made it to the podium over the three days of racing including:Callie Hislop, Sara Telle-Langdon, Tori Hislop and Anna Blankstein in the various female categories; Jack Healey, Carter Grycko, Jacob King, Jack Dunlop, Ethan Grycko and MacLean Hatherly in the Male categories.
The Manitoba Cup Club Championship is awarded based on points accumulated throughout the entire season, by athletes at all levels of the club. Each Summit athlete should feel a great sense of pride in this fantastic accomplishment!
On the strength of her excellent skiiing and dominating results throughout the season, Summit's Tori Hislop was named Manitoba Cup Female Champion. Congratulations Tori, your entire team is very proud of you! Tori is a committed athlete and works hard to perfect here technique. She is also an excellent mentor to the younger athletes.
It was another great season for the Summit Ski Club. Many thanks to the team of committed coaches that provide excellent coaching and skill development for all of our athletes. Of course, as with most sports at this level, the season would not take place without the many hours of work from the large group of volunteers from all clubs that run virtually all of the events! Well done!
Summit's Younger Athletes Compete
At the Barclay Sno-Byrd Race
It was a beautiful day for a ski race, and the completion of the final leg of the Snow Stars Academy.
All Summit athletes did very well, with Summit Ski Club athletes making many trips to the podium. In the Boys U14 category, it was a Summit Sweep!
Congratulations to all the Summit athletes for great performance at a great race event!
It Was Head to Head Racing
At the Dual Slalom Race
(February 16, 2013) The Manitoba Cup Race #4 (Dual Slalom) Race took place today at Springhill Winter Park. Summit U16 and older athletes (including John Prall, one of the Summit Ski Club parents) were part of a small field of athletes that participated in the race.
The first part of the day was spent in Time Trials, where athletes complete the course one by one.
Once the times are compiled, the competition is laid out and athletes compete "Head to Head" against other athletes. To ensure that each athlete has the same opportunity to win, the racers make two runs. After the first run they switch sides to eliminate any advantage one side of the course might have over the other. In the event of a tie, a third round is run. The winner of that heat moves on to the next round.
Summit Athletes Participate in
Snow Stars Academy and Kombi Race
(February 10, 2013) This weekend, Summit Ski Club members headed to Bottineau, North Dakota where they were treated to some beautiful weather with warm temperatures, no wind and clear blue skies. Heavy frost on Saturday morning made for some very beautiful scenery. Summit families enjoyed a great weekend with two full days of activities at Bottineau Winter Park.
Athletes trained in anticipation of the Kombi Race and took part in the Snow Stars Stations on Saturday. Our U12 and under athletes were awarded medals based on their results in the pole jumping station, with the athletes enjoying the activities. After the lifts closed, the Bottineau Winter Park hosted a tubing party for the athletes and their families.
On Sunday, the Kombi Race was run. U10 and under athletes competed as teams, while the U12 athletes were in the running for medals. Congratulations to all Summit skiers, for excellent results at this event. Haleigh Eby, Jack Healey and Carter Grycko made it to the podium in the U12 age categories.

Head to the Mountains
(December 31, 2012) A group of 16 Summit Ski Club athletes and their coaches and families, travelled to the mountains for the annual mountain camp. The camp which ran December 31 to January 4th was held at the Sunshine Village Ski & Board Resort located outside of Banff, Alberta.
Head Coach Brian Hatherly and coaches Dan Blankstein and Glenn Allen provided training for the athletes. Sunshine Village lived up to it's name with excellent weather and beautiful views.
Besides some excellent skining, the group enjoyed two team dinners and time together off the hill.
Training Starts Early
At Asessippi Ski Area!
(December 16, 2012) - A group of Summit athletes participated in a pre-season training session at the Asessippi Ski Are this weekend. As the hill was not open to the public, not everything was in operation.
As the athletes soon found out, access to the hill via the quad chair was not an option. Instead athletes had the pleasure of boarding a school bus for the ride to the top of the hill. Once on the other side, the triple chair carried athletes as usual.
While a little unusal, this was an excellent opportunity for our athletes to get on the snow!
