Ski mountaineers want to succeed

Andrew McNab, Julie Matteau and Melanie Bernier of the National Ski Mountaineering Team pose in front of some of the cool items that were up for grabs during the silent auction portion of their fund-raising party at the Last Drop on Thursday. They raised $1,600 as a result of the event and had a good time doing it. The team receives no federal or provincial funding and is trying to raise enough money to attend the World Championships in Claut, Italy, in February. David F. Rooney photo
