A bit of rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of 75 competitors who took part Saturday in the annual Cain Cup and adult races of Winterfest at Mount Cain ski area.

Kelly Davidson won the women’s Cain Cup for the second straight year, while Steve McDermid claimed his first men’s title. Both winners received prizes of a new pair of skis from event prize sponsor Valhalla Pure of Courtenay.

Rain early in the day gave way to large snowflakes for the afternoon races on The Face, which drew ski racers from age 16 to 60-plus.

Organizers thanked the competitors who traveled from various points on and around Vancouver Island, and the many volunteers who stepped forward to make the event possible.

Additional results appear in Sports Scoreboard, on page 14.
