Campbell Riverite Kole Harle had a golden run last weekend in preparation for the province’s top races.

The Mount Washington Alpine Racing team travelled to Grouse mountain to compete in a regional race which included Whistler, Grouse, Seymour, Cypress and Mount Washington racers. 

Harle earned a gold medal. 

Harle attributes his success to the extra training he receives during the week with the Podium of Life Ski Academy. 

“I get to ski after my morning classes on the mountain instead of going to normal school,” says Harle.

This season he changed to a different brand of skis and he claims that his new skis make a difference. 

“I am a lot faster on my new Atomic skis. They seem to carve better.”  Of course proper waxing and sharpening of the skis also makes a difference.

Harle hopes to continue his podium position in future races. There are a number of races in the series which includes the Provincials held at Mount Washington in March.
