Mt. Cain’s Ski Team “The Wolfpack” attended their first ever race at Mt. Washington Alpine Resort, which saw over 90 kids compete ranging in age from 5-14.

The race was a Mt. Washington Club race, but Mt. Cain’s Wolf Pack kids were also invited down to compete in the second of the two club races Mt.Washington hosts per year.

9 Wolf Pack kids from age 6 to 11 enjoyed free skiing on the moutnain Saturday March 3. gearing up to compete in the race on Sunday March 4.

“The Mount Cain kids represented us very well and even came home with a gold medal,” said Wolf Pack Coach Chris Lindsay, who organized and attended the trip along with coaches Christian Tutors, Jake Coulbourne, and Conner Scott.

Aiden Pratt, who only just started skiing this year, won a gold medal in his 6 and under division, and all the kids who attended, except two, were from Port Hardy and Port McNeill.

The kids competed in three events, a Giant Slalom, a distance jump, and a speed trap.

“Most of the kids had never ridden on a chairlift!” said Lindsay of the trip, adding that “Overall it was a great experience for the kids, parents, and coaches.”

The Mount Cain Board of Directors donated $400 towards the coaches lodging so that the four couches could attend and make the trip a reality for the Wolf Pack skiers.
