It's been a busy week on Bald Mountain, with roughly 375 FIS Masters racers, gathered from 14 countries spanning the globe.

"The races are going off great," said race administrator Pat Revallier, who added that the firm morning snow is "perfect for racing."

After two days of racing, both the women and the mens' B Division have completed a super G on Mid-Warm Springs while the mens' A division had their giant slalom on Greyhawk.

Locals of note included Jeff Sarchett, who won his M3 giant slalom race. Matt Murphy turned in a lopsided score on his GS. Murphy's second run, at 52:52, was the second fastest on the course all day, but combined with a slow first take, he finished 26th in his M4.

For the women, Abigail Fisher-Gould took home the gold in her F4 super G, as did Glenn McConkey in F7 and Rosie Moschel in F6. Virginia Reed finished second in the F9 division for the super G.
