Mt. Hood Meadows was the site of the annual Mt. Hood Championship GS on March 5th.

After the snow had fallen all night, racers were greeted with partly cloudy skies.

The long giant slalom course was set on Middle Fork, using the rolling terrain to challenge skiers young and old.

Once again, Cooper Spur Race Team's 7- to 8-year-old boys took charge, with Montana Kurahara winning his second race in a row.

Hunter Kern was close behind in 3rd and William Lamer in 5th. Younger brothers Mitchell Lamer and Dakota Kurahara placed 2nd and 3rd respectively in the 6 and under boys division.

Korey Cimock took charge on her 2nd run to place 6th in the 9-10 girls age group.

This race lets the younger skiers shine, since any racers who qualify for Buddy Werner's races are not eligible to enter.

The Spring Festival will be the last Mitey Mite race of the season on March 18 and 19, to be held at Ski Bowl.
