At five years young, the Smith Junior Freeski Open at Whitewater Ski Resort is an institution. This year's event was sold out with over a 100 competitors from B.C., Alberta and even the U.S. charging down the slopes of the ski hill. A huge congratulations goes out to Jona Caney for taking the top spot in the boys 15-18 category and Ava Prosser for taking the top spot in the girls 15-18 category.
