A Foothills area skier has already captured a pair of silver medals at the 2023 Canada Winter Games in New Brunswick.

Rebecca Pelkey won a silver in the Slalom event Thursday finishing behind a skier from B.C. who won gold and a competitor from Quebec who took bronze.

She also tied for second and received a silver in the Super G.

Pelkey finished 7th in the Giant Slalom.

She’ll compete in the Ski Cross on Sunday, the final day of the games.

If the name sounds familiar her sisters, Megan and Sofia Pelkey, have competed nationally and internationally in water skiing.
