Field Tops Podium at Mt. Norquay Van Houtte Giant Slalom, Gartner Second

Van Houtte race action continued Saturday at Mt. Norquay where giant slalom competition offered the BC girls another chance to shine. BC Team athlete Charley Field took the win decisively, with the fastest two run time of one minute, 52.71 seconds. Stephanie Gartner, winner of both slalom races of the series, took her third trip to the podium in as many days, finishing second in the GS in 1:56.69.
 

FLASH QUOTE – Charley Field (Whistler Mountain Ski Club):

"I had a pretty hard first couple of days of slalom so I was looking forward to giant slalom this morning. With cold weather and inconsistent snow conditions, my runs went pretty well. I felt good confidence before my run and am really happy about my result."
 

FLASH QUOTE - Stephanie Gartner (Fernie Alpine Ski Team):

"First run today I found myself a bit nervous of the terrain, not quite used to that steep of a slope, so I just went with a pretty chill mind-set. Second run I was feeling more confident and was able to get a bit closer to my amazing team mate Charley! She really was the star of today’s race!"
