The final carnival of the season also brings the final skiers of the week. It served as a final reminder of the dominance UVM has had this season.
For the women, Justine Clement earns her first skier of the week honors of the year on the backs of her second place finish in the GS and her first Slalom win of the season. She finished head and shoulders above everyone else in a dominating performance. It shows that she has found her stride just in time for NCAA Championships.

On the men's side, the award goes to Mathias Tefre, his second skier of the week honors. The Senior from UVM notched a win in the GS and then a third place finish in the Slalom. He finishes the year with eight podiums and wins in five of the six Slalom races.
The duo of Clement and Tefre become the sixth and seventh Catamounts to take the honors. UVM has had a superb season winning all but one carnival and will look for its first National Championship since 2012 when NCAA Championships kick off back at Whiteface in two weeks.
