Mark Baxendale

President of GKHAT

Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team (GKHAT) was invited to attend the Doug Meyer Memorial Cup late in the season, hosted by the Lake Louise Grizzlies Ski Team. Due to other commitments the team was reduced to one, Rex Baxendale.

The event was held on part of the Women’s World Cup course.

In deteriorating weather and course conditions, Baxendale’s times improved on every run through the course that he ran.

He finished 4th in his class against some tough competition from other local clubs and athletes.

Baxendale received great hospitality from the race organizing committee, and wanted to thank them. We look forward to the Grizzlies attending the GKHAT home race next year.
