Wallis skis fast at Mission Ridge

— Claire Wallis of the Loup Loup Alpine Ski Team just missed the podium last weekend during downhill races last weekend at Mission Ridge.

Wallis finished fifth in U16 and 14th overall. She was sixth in U16 on Saturday and 12th overall on Sunday.

The team normally competes at the Wolf Chase at the Loup Loup Ski Bowl, but low snow conditions canceled the annual event.

Ali Palm was 12th in U14 and 23rd overall on Saturday and 13th in U14 and 26th overall on Sunday.

Cailin Chandler was 13th in U14 and 24th overall on Saturday.

Others on the team include Bergen Patterson (U16) and William Jennings (U14), said Ingrid Patterson with the team.

Steve Nelson coaches the team.
