Sydney Weaver of the Park City Ski Team receives the first-place Overall Award at the Wes Barron SG series on Jan. 22. Weaver was named the PCST Skier of the Month in January.

Sydney Weaver earned the right to be named the January Skier of the Month by establishing herself as one of Park City Ski Team's top competitors. Sydney has been competing at the U16 level, where she kicked off the season with a fourth place in the first slalom qualifier. After the first technical qualifiers in Jackson were contested, the athletes returned to Jackson for an Intermountain Open speed series. Sydney proved to be the speed queen in Intermountain when she placed second, second and first in her three races to capture the Wes Barron title.

“Sydney has had a great start to the season both in the speed and the tech races," PCST U16 Head Coach Cameron Chin said. "She is showing she has speed and has been able to perform well thus far this season."

Sydney attends the Winter Sports School in Park City and is an honor-level student.

Five-hundred dollars will be donated to the Park City Ski Team scholarship fund by Gaddis Investments on behalf of Sydney's accomplishments.
