Sweeping the David Wright Memorial slalom podium in convincing fashion at Park City, Utah last weekend were local J3 (ages 13-14) girls Amands Stelling, Teagen Palmer and Nicole Roos. That was a highlight of the USSA technical races there.

On Picabo's run, second-year J4 Stelling nailed the course with a 1:39.59 two-run clocking, 2.40 seconds ahead of Palmer and three seconds faster than Roos. In Sunday's giant slalom on CB's, Stelling came through with another great run, good for second place with Palmer taking third, two seconds back.

There were 23 Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF) and Hailey Ski Team (HST) racers in the 120-racer field of the Intermountain Division's best J3 alpine ski racers. Other podium winners were Kipling Weisel and Connor Farrow.
