Clavsen, Romanow claim Cup

Annual Cain Cup ski race held Saturday at Mount Cain Ski Area.

MOUNT CAIN—First Ali Romanow entertained ski race fans on the slopes. Then she did it on the stage.

Romanow, a Courtenay-based singer-songwriter, claimed the women’s title in the annual Cain Cup ski race Saturday at Mount Cain Ski Area, then performed with the Mission Hill Band at the after party at Mount Cain Lodge.

Alan Clavsen of Sointula took home the men’s title.

Clausen posted a time of one minute, 17.77 seconds, nearly a second faster than runner-up Jake Colbourne of Port Hardy (1:18.65). Mike Fischer was third in 1:24.44.

Romanow won the women’s race in 1:26:18, more than two seconds ahead of Kelly Davidson of Courtenay (1:28.78).

Jenna Cowan of Sointula placed third in 1:33.51.

Dozens of competitors took part under bright, sunny skies in the giant slalom race down the face of the ski area. Afterward, they gathered for a late-afternoon awards ceremony at Mount Cain Lodge. A Cain Cup dinner and dance followed to close out the day.

Next up for Mount Cain is the annual Telefest telemark skiing festival and races, Feb. 16-17, followed by the popular Kids Fest at Spring Break, March 23.
