Steve Blacklock and Erika Jaubert posted the fastest men’s and women’s times as Mount Cain Alpine Society hosted its annual Cain Cup races at Mount Cain Ski Area in late January.

Blacklock clocked a time of 32.84 seconds to lead a tightly packed  group of men’s skiing competitors.

Blacklock was the only skier to crack the 33-second barrier, but was closely followed by a group of skiers within one second, including Kenneth Hallberg (33.05), Todd Fogarty (33.16), Mark Hutchinson (33.37), Jake Colbourne (33.55) and Dave Brown (33.85).

Jaubert, on the other hand, finished more than two seconds ahead of her nearest challenger in the women’s ski race, with a time of 35.60. Teen Kelly Davidson was second at 37.79 and Darcy Turenne third overall in 27.92.

Linsey Carter was the fastest women’s snowboarder, in 45.72. Dustin Carmen was the fastest boarder among men, in 42.54.
