35th Annual Wells Fargo Ski Cup

February 21, 2010

Kelly and Claire have taken a day away from training with the British Disabled Ski Team to take part in the 35th Annual Wells Fargo Ski Cup’s World Disabled Invitational.

The event is run by the National Sports Centre for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado where Kelly and Claire have been training since December. The weekend’s highlights include: Corporate Team Cup race, World Disabled Invitational, NSCD 40th Anniversary Party, a two day silent auction and ice carving demonstrations. – http://www.skifornscd.com/

After enjoying the highlights of the Saturday night party, the Girls took to the slopes to compete in dual slalom rounds. Two courses are sets side by side and each participant races on each course against the competitor they are drawn to race with. Kelly and Claire did well during the early rounds while racing against Anna Turney, and Luba Lowery. However, they were pushed out of the final by eventual winner and NSCD team mate Alana Nichols, the Girls battled for third position but again were squeezed out by NSCD team mate Ricci Kilgore.
