Junior Gabriel Rivas led the way for CU, finishing third in men’s slalom with a time of 1:31.96. Senior Drew Roberts, in ninth, was the other men’s skier that finished in the top 10.
Freshman Erika Ghent in fourth, sophomore Sara Hjertman in sixth, and junior Carolina Nordh in ninth in women’s slalom were the other three Colorado skiers that found their way into the final ten.
The Buffs finished with 903 points while second place New Mexico finished with 835 points, and third place Denver with 822 points.
Next up for the ski team is the completion of the Utah Invitational with the Nordic events on Friday and Saturday at Soldier Hollow, Utah.
