ski-racer-thumbnailAbout 30 of Big Bear’s top 11 and 12-year-old skiers competed in this weekend’s J4 festival qualifying race at Snow Summit resort over the weekend. Though none of the skiers from the Snow Summit Junior Race Team qualified for the competition over racers from six other teams, a number of them from the Tahoe area, the future looks bright for three of the younger racers who came close to achieving a place in the festival. Eleven-year-old Evan Williams and Stephanie Lebby and Rachel Desrochers, both of whom just turned 12, are favored for festival competition next year, as they will continue racing on Summit’s J4 team.
