AST 2019 Athlete Journal: Angus Musgrave
Hey everyone!! Welcome to my second Athlete journal as a part of the team.
Over the last couple weeks the team split up with the boys going to Kimberley Mountain Resort, to race the Dreadnaught speed series and a night slalom. The girls headed down south of the border to Snow King, Jackson, to ski in some NorAm teck races, with the exception of Tora who has been recovering from illness.
The girls success came, with Ashleigh, scoring a career-best FIS result in GS and finishing in 17th . Then, Claire backing it up the following day with a 16th place finish. The girls were able to come home with some NorAm top 20s, in a very strong field of racers. It also, snowed like crazy while they were down there, and the girls got some serious powder turns, in the legendary Tetons.

Mine was in the Night Slalom and Andrew’s in the Super G. Caeden brought home some hardware, third in the Night slalom, third in a Super G and a plethora of U-19 Medals of all colors. This was our biggest medal haul so far this season, with 2 gold 4 silver and 3 bronze. We gained valuable experience and miles on our Super G and Downhill skis!
Up next for the Team, we have a couple slalom races in Grouse and some GS and Super G races in Whistler. It has been an excellent couple of weeks. I look forward to having the full team back together for these upcoming races!
I would also like to Thank our sponsors for helping us out along the way it wouldn’t be possible without you guys! So thank you Sporting Life Canada, Western GMC Buick, Ortema/pro sport protection, Descente international, and Ski Big 3!
