Alpine Skiing

Casper Mountain is the destination for alpine skiers with the two-day KWHS Bruce Studer Invitational races.

This is a Thursday-Friday event, instead of Friday and Saturday at Hogadon Basin Ski Area.

The giant slalom or GS race is Thursday on 'Boomerang' run. It starts at 3:15 p.m. The later start also means some night skiing conditions.

Thursday Results

Taylor Smith won the girls' GS with a 2-run combined time of 1:08.22. She led a 1-5 sweep for Jackson.

Travis D'Amours led a 1-4 finish for Jackson with the win in the boys' division. His 2-run combined time was 1:05.14.

Jackson leads the team standings with 80 in the girls' division and 78 points in the boys' division.

Friday will be the slalom competition on 'Boomerang' run. The start time is set for 10:15 a.m.
