I lived and worked in Whistler from 1988 to 2001 during the time of the Original Race. I was and am still good friends with Marc Gagnon who won two races back to back. He has lived in Japan since teach extreme skiing to this day. As I recall his decent time is still among the fastest.
One wonders if the new race will have a ‘classic ski’ category, so we can dust off the ol’ 210 GS skinnies, and have at ‘er?!
