The Heavenly Foundation ski team wrapped up the season with its last competition this past weekend at Squaw Valley.
The final course was set on Shirley Lake, and racers had to juggle early morning icy conditions that melted into soft and tricky snow by afternoon. Despite the tough conditions, the Heavenly team had a great showing, with most getting their highest scores ever.
Shanti Payne, who has been training like a fiend, had two second-pace finishes, just missing gold by 1/100 of a point.
Taryn Baker showed off her amazing turns for two J-2 wins.
Heavenly’s 12-yea-old phenom Gabriella Fisher had two overall sevenths and two J-4 wins with her best scores ever.
Dean Ambrosi’s hard work paid off as he bested his highest score by about three points and snagged a J-3 bronze.
Mia Idzorek also had a personal best score and two J-4 seconds, skiing so well the Heavenly coach almost didn’t recognize her.
Diminutive dynamite Ally Sullivan also had her best run ever and two J-4 thirds.
Ripping Range Chapman had all-time best runs too, with a first and second in J-4s.
“Gnarly Karli” Anderson shredded the course to garner a J-4 fourth.
Matthew Sullivan boosted 360s to wow the crowd and get a J-5 fifth.
Joshua Sullivan flowed down the course like water with his textbook turns to get a J-3 fourth.
