Canadians rocked the men’s Nor Am slalom at Panorama today (Dec. 13) with Trevor Philp taking the win and teammates Philip Brown, Trevor White and Sasha Zaitsoff finishing in order behind him.

The women’s GS looked a lot the same as the previous day with Kristine Gjelsten Haugen taking the win over Mikaela Tommy and Erik Mielzynski.

A lack of snow has the women’s GS going from a lower start on the flats and the course is soft making it tough on late starters. The slalom hill is steep and difficult at the top but runs out onto a long flat finishing with the downhill.

Work crews are blowing snow hoping to get the men’s GS start Friday to the traditional location giving the guys a chance to build up some speed before reaching the flat.
