Athletes and family members of the Mount Washington Freestyle Club gathered on the weekend to send their best wishes to Cassie Sharpe, women’s halfpipe skier, and Teal Harle, men’s slopestyle skier, who are representing Canada at the Pyeongchang Olympics. These two athletes began their freestyle training with the club, and have both gone on to win a variety of world championship events. The MWFC has been following them closely and celebrating their successes all year.
The club would also like to shout out cheers to three other locals at the Games: Spencer O’Brien (women’s snowboard slopestyle), Carle Brenneman (women’s snowboard cross) and Megan Tandy (women’s biathalon).
We are proud of you – Go for Gold Vancouver Island!
From March 29 to April 1, the MWFC, with support of the Mount Washington Alpine resort, hosts the BC Timber Tour 3 competition. Athletes from clubs across B.C. will compete in moguls, slopestyle and big air. This event will be the final in a series of provincial freestyle events and will host more than 120 freestyle skiers.
