Mammoth Mountain hosted a group of 75 local student athletes for the annual Geoff “Goof” Carreiro Memorial Fun Race on Wednesday, March 9. The Mammoth Elementary School and Mammoth Middle School Ski and Snowboard Team athletes, along with the Mammoth Mountain Jr. Team’s U10’s, U12’s, and Chargers had perfect conditions for racing and that was apparent with the times they turned in.
The fastest skier of the day was MMSST’s Nevin Vanderhurst, who finished the race with a time of 19.56 seconds. The U10 turned in the top times in both runs of the “best time counts” race. U12 racer Bryn Urdi followed him with the second fastest time in both runs. The top snowboarder of the day was Jake Westfall who completed the course with a time of 28.14 seconds.
