Warkentin clan tops Cain telemark meet

Warkentin clan combine for the top spots in the annual Telefest Telemark races at Mt. Cain.

It was all in the family on Mount Cain last week as the Warkentin clan combined for the top spots in the annual Telefest Telemark races on the face.

The event, which included the telemark ski expo, drew a small but dedicated field of skiers in the hybrid, backcountry form of skiing which combines facets of downhill and cross-country skiing.

Dave Warkentin took the top spot in the men’s race, in a time of 45.2 seconds. Tara Warkentin, the youngest women’s competitor, was the first female, in 56.4.

The event followed the annual Cain Cup races. The Mount Cain Alpine Society will wrap up its seasonal triumvirate of races with the Kids Fest slalom and obstacle course races March 23, at the end of spring break.

The popular event includes plenty of fun events for all ages, including snow sculpture and games. For more information and for regular snow condition updates, visit www.mountcain.com.
