Gage Thibodeaua, a U14 skier from Holimont, was in the New York State Championship race and placed first, winning the gold for Giant Slalom at Windham ski resort.
Thibodeaua qualified for the Eastern U.S. Championship race in Stowe, VT last weekend, where he finished 12th overall and 3rd for skiing skills, awarding him a large medal.
Thibodeaua is now moving on to the AMCANS in Sugar Loaf, ME on March 27 – 30, representing the U.S. against the best from Canada.
Kids from Ellicottville won four out of the six races at the state championships last weekend, which is a true testament about the coaches Ellicottville has on their slopes! Congratulations to Gage and all of Ellicottville’s racers!
