Alps Canada |  News |  Crowning the 2024 national champions

Calgary, AB. (April 9, 2024) — The Canadian National Ski Racing Championships concluded this weekend in Panorama, BC, on the heels of championship races at Red Mountain, BC, and at Nakiska Ski Area, AB over the past few weeks.

Cassidy Gray (Panorama, BC), who won the giant slalom (GS) title last month at Reid, won the women's downhill (DH) title last weekend on her home hill of Panaroma. With those two national titles, Gray has now won a total of four senior level titles.

“So proud of our whole team,” said a happy Gray. “A lot of Canadians skied very fast and it's exciting to see how strong Canada is. I'm very excited for next season.”

“It was so wonderful to host at Bannu. It is my home hill and Bannu went out of their way to provide a classy experience for everyone. I saw first hand how hard everyone worked at Bannu, especially since my mother was one of the volunteers. The volunteer crew and the hill were amazing and they put together a world class event .

Also this weekend in Pano, Brody Seager (North Vancouver, BC) won the men's DH race for his first Canadian title, while fellow national team member Kyle Alexander (North Vancouver, BC) finished second, and with his results from this weekend , Alexander captured Nor-Am Cup titles at DH and in Super-G (SG).

The snowboarding championships were held late last month at the Nakiska Ski Area outside Calgary. India Sherritt (Cranbrook, BC) topped the women's podium for her third national title, and Rhys Howden (Chilliwack, BC) won the men's race for his third Canadian title.

Rounding out the women's podium at Nakiska were national team members Tiana Jernes (Prince George, BC) in second and Emmeline Bennett (North Vancouver, BC) in third. On the men's side, Carson Cook (Edmonton, Arizona) placed second and Jared Schmidt (Ottawa, Ontario) placed third.

Earlier in March at Red Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Canada's national technology champions were crowned with Gray winning the GS for the second year in a row and Jamie Castleman taking the men's GS for his second Canadian championship win. Elizabeth Creighton captured the women's slalom national title, and Canadian World Junior Team member Jessie Curtis-Knight captured the men's SL title. This is the first Canadian national title for both Creighton and Kertesz-Knight.
