Juneau's Sarah Fischer posted two top-20 finishes over the weekend in the Eastern Cup slalom races held Saturday and Sunday at Cannon Mountain, N.H.
Fischer, who skis with the Park City (Utah) Ski Team, was back East last week for several Nor-Am Series races in New York and New Hampshire, which is a level below the World Cup. Fischer extended her trip to include the Cannon Mountain races, which were part of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association's Eastern Region FIS Elite Tech series.
In Saturday's slalom race, Fischer took 19th place out of 101 finishers with a two-run time of 1 minute, 38.93 seconds. Anda Curuta of Rumania won the race in 1:33.84.
On Sunday, Fischer moved up to 13th place out of 79 finishers with a two-run time of 1:31.76. Curuta also won Sunday's slalom race, this time in 1:27.81.
