It is a week-long event that includes two downhill training days and a down hill race, a super G, GS, and slalom. It includes social events such as an opening parade, athlete social and closing night banquet. The top three winners for boys and girls earn a spot to the coveted Whistler Cup World Games in April.

Cont. Rocky/Central J3 Junior Olympics.


“I think people were amazed would even pulled it off,” Ski and Snowboard Club Vail coach J.J. Jensen said. “Everyone worked together and Vail Resorts was nice enough to get us some cats.”

They were able to pull it off thanks to 100 workers, athletes and coaches who spent time getting the course ready. With a plan in place on Monday night, crews went right to work Tuesday. After the two snow cats did as much as they could, the entire field of skiers and coaches took two maintenance runs down the course to remove any loose snow.

The hard work created a firm racing surface.
