Reigning Olympic champ and Big White nobility Kelsey Serwa won gold at the 2019 Canadian Ski Cross Championships.

The 29-year-old pro celebrated with a win for her last race of the season.

“It’s always nice to wrap up the season with a fun race and a solid performance and that was exactly what happened this past weekend,” Serwa said in a news release from Big White.

“Despite the springtime squalls, the races went off on schedule and volunteers and racers alike all had smiles on our races. I feel fortunate to end my 10th season racing ski cross 100 per cent healthy and with two more victories under my belt.”
