(PhatzRadio / CBC Sports) — Trevor Philp won the men’s slalom title at the Canadian championships on Monday in Mont-Sainte-Anne, Que.
“I’m really excited right now,” said Philp, whose previous best result at the Canadian championships was eighth in giant slalom in 2011 in Nakiska, Alta. “It’s a pretty cool feeling to win at Canadian champs.”
Philp, who currently skis for and studies at the University of Denver, secured a World Cup spot in slalom for next season after ranking as one of the top two North Americans in the overall Nor-Am Cup slalom standings. He also secured a World Cup spot in giant slalom and super combined.
“Very pleased with it [this season] and how it went and hopefully it keeps rolling,” said Philp. “Next year I hope to have a better combination of the skiing and school. I’m planning on still doing some school and hopefully be able to work with the [national] team more.”
