    BEAVER CREEK & MINTURN, Colo. — Junior Mads Stroem won his fourth straight RMISA Individual Championship and freshman Max Luukko joined him as the men’s slalom champion, helping the University of Colorado ski team to a second place finish here Saturday at the 67th Annual RMISA Championships, which double as the NCAA Western Regional Championships.

    In all, CU had four podium appearances and 11 skiers finish in the top 11, helping the Buffs to 634 points, just 28 points behind Utah’s total of 662. The Buffs did pass Denver on the day, which finished with 595 points in third place. Montana State (521) and New Mexico (473) round out the top five.

    “It was a very interesting weekend,” CU coach Richard Rokos said. “It was a dog fight and test of survival. The alpine hill was something we’ve never seen before, hopefully we can see more courses like this. But we had some causalities with Ola (Johansen) and Roger (Carry) not skiing, Petra (Hyncicova) not here and Ane (Johnsen) not skiing today. But being less than 30 points behind Utah, they’re at full strength, so it’s a good place to be and a confidence builder.”

    For the second straight day, Stroem not only won but did do in dominating fashion, taking the race by 39.8 seconds over freshman Petter Reistad, giving the Buffs a 1-2 finish in the race. Stroem’s winning time was 51 minutes, 8.6 seconds and Reistand crossed the finish line in 51:48.4.

    Let's hope for some snow in the next 10 days, or the course is going to favor the east coast teams.
