Cordell and Goodison take home a pair of silver medals on home soil Ashley Koehler from Quebec sees Gold

To kick off 2023, the Canadian moguls NextGen team kicked off the action in the well-renown course of Apex Mountain, BC. Known as one of the athletes’ favorite stops on tour, the team was eager to face the best north American skiers on home soil. The team was composed of 5 skiers (1 woman, 4 men) and coaches Philippe Marquis and Jim Schiman. Throughout the weekend, the athletes put down some solid runs cracking even a few scores in the 80 points range. While everyone was able to secure top-10 finishes, Sam Cordell was the top Canadian at Saturday’s mogul event with a second-place finish. Then, his good friend and teammate Sam Goodison showcased all his speed in a well fought dual event on Sunday to also leave Apex Mountain with some silver hardware. On the women side, Jessica Linton was able to put down 2 solid performances with a 4th (MO) and a 8th (DM) places.

” I’m very pleased how the team fought and behaved all week. I’ve seen so much hard work from all of them to prepare for this season, and to come out with those performances that early in the Winter really sets the tone for the rest of the Noram tour. Hats off to the organizing committee, the volunteers, and all the athletes for putting together a beautiful event.” – Philippe Marquis
