BASSINGBOURN'S young skiers faced a difficult challenge in the annual Welwyn ERSA race.
More than 170 skiers from the East of England converged for the popular competition, with two of Bassingbourn's juniors and three of their seniors taking part.
Youngsters Ben Upton and Ross Lucie-Smith both suffered setbacks in their opening attempts.
Upton clipped a pole on his first run before claiming a time of 21.12 seconds.
However, a time of 12.02 secs on his second race did much to secure a deserved 12th place finish.
Lucie-Smith fared a little better, and despite a disappointing first attempt, bounced back with a comfortable 12.83 in his second race before registering an impressive 11.99 and a seventh place finish.
