CMAC and FMC overlapped from 8 – 10 February 2023, held in Kimberley, BC. CMAC included two Super-G races on Wednesday, a 2-run slalom race on Thursday and a 2-run GS race on Friday, for a total of four races. FMC included two Super-G races on Wednesday, a 1-run slalom (part of Alpine Combined) and a 2-run slalom race on Thursday and two 1-run GS races on Friday, for a total of six races.
There were 73 competitors, in total, with 20 from Ontario, 5 from Quebec, 17 from Alberta, 7 from BC, 11 from USA, 5 from Switzerland and 1 each from Australia, Austria, Chile, France, and Italy. The age categories ranged from 80-84 down to 18-29 for CMAC and 80-84 down to 35-39 for FMC; all age categories, as well as non-FIS card holders, were allowed to race in the FMC races but obviously no FIS points awarded.
Ontario Masters did well bringing home 39 medals (13 gold, 17 silver & 9 bronze) between them for CMAC. Similarly, ON Masters brought home 32 medals (13 gold, 13 silver & 6 bronze) for FMC. Note: Seven did not have FIS cards.
Kimberley Alpine Resort put on an excellent event for the Masters so a big THANK YOU goes out to Kimberley ROC and race crew, the volunteers, and members on the Masters’ National Committee.
