North Series makes final stop on Arrowhead

Grand Targhee tech races

Two days of technical racing produced eight age class victories for Sun Valley and Hailey alpine skiers during the Intermountain Division’s North Series Championships March 27-28 on Grand Targhee’s Arrowhead run.

Sun Valley’s J4 Tanner Flanigan came up with one of two overall wins last weekend for the Wood River Valley racers. He captured Saturday’s men’s giant slalom with a terrific first run, out-racing Hailey’s Ryan Foster by .55 seconds to lead 40 finishers.

J3 winner Grayson Palmer of Sun Valley earned the other overall triumph with a 1.04-second win in Sunday’s women’s slalom. Meghan Luck of Hailey took second overall in Saturday’s GS, the top J3.

Casey Bennett of Hailey added a J3 class victory, sixth overall, in Sunday’s SL. Soren Ireland captured the J3 class in Saturday’s GS, fourth overall.

Clocking the second-fastest second run, Hailey’s J5 winner Miles Sweek rose all the way to third place overall in Sunday’s SL. Hailey’s Amanda Stelling posted a pair of J5 women’s wins in GS and SL, ninth and 11th overall.
