Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation alpine ski racer Yuri McClure, 17, grabbed a second place in men’s giant slalom in Wednesday’s Western Region FIS Open race at Sugar Bowl, Ca.
It was the best-ever Interna-tional Ski Federation (FIS) fin-ish for McClure, a Wood River High School senior. He won the second run out of 96 two-run finishers and placed first among the 83 U-19 men.
McClure has enjoyed suc-cess at Sugar Bowl this winter, having placed fifth in the Na-tional Junior giant slalom on the California hill Jan. 14. He was 12th in Tuesday’s GS at Sugar Bowl, the fifth U-19.
