WENATCHEE — Brooke Wales has not spent a lot of time on her “home” course this season, but she looked mighty comfortable there Friday as she won both the women’s super-G and super combined races on the first day of the Western Region Elite FIS Spring Series at Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort.
“It’s very nice to be home. I’ve trained on the hill plenty,” said Wales, who grew up in Sammamish but spent most of her winters in Wenatchee and at Mission Ridge before embarking on an international career this season. “Not so much this year, but in the past, and knowing how it runs and the different terrain is extremely helpful. I’m very comfortable on it.”
