Nicole Roos, another SVSEF J2, finished fourth overall and the second J2 in Saturday's women's slalom.

SVSEF J3 (ages 13-14) Jordan Fitzgerald put down two solid giant slalom runs on Primrose Path to capture fourth overall (3rd J3) in Friday's GS for 70 finishers. J3 Haley Cutler was the second J3 in Monday's SL.
