During this challenging season, races have been hard to find. However, the SSRA Alpine Team (U16+) has been lucky to find snow and racing conditions at Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Spokane.
Jan 3-4 (Mt. Bachelor, OR) Jared Farley and Cole McClellan led the SSRA U16's at two Northwest Cup races at Mt. Bachelor, Oregon. The Northwest Cup Series is the premier divisional level of racing in the Pacific Northwest Ski Assocaition (Washington, Oregon and North Idaho) for athletes 14 and up.
On Saturday, Jared Farley took the top team honor with a 39th place finish overall (12th for U16's), followed by Hunter Scheidt in 42nd place (15th for U16's), and Scot Simpson in 67th (37th for U16's).

Jan 17-19 (Mt. Spokane, WA) Cole McClellan and the SSRA men took on visitors from around the Pacific Northwest in the first U16 qualifiers for the Western Region U16 Championships to take place at Mt. Bachelor March 18-22. In challenging conditions, racers battled it out on one of the best race venues in the Western Region-Mt. Spokane's Hourglass trail.
All four of the talented and hard working SSRA U16's took advantage of their home field advantage in the giant slalom with top twenty finishes. Cole McClellan powered to a 4th place finish after a blazing second run only 3 tenths of a second behind the leader. McClellan stopped the clock at 1.54:58. Scot Simpson took 8th place with two solid runs in a breakthrough GS performance in 2.00:30. Jared Farley was a blink of an eye behind Simpson with a 2.00:33 taking 9th place. After making the 12th fastest first run, Hunter Scheidt finished 17th for the SSRA men in 2.04:17.
