Experience the Podium races this weekend

Mount Washington Ski Club hosting some of B.C.'s best young skiers

THE MOUNT WASHINGTON Ski Club is hosting an Experience the Podium race this weekend.

 

 

 

The Mount Washington Ski Club (MWSC) will be showing off their Island mountain to over 200 U12 athletes and their families this weekend.

Competitors will travel from Whistler/Blackcomb, Cypress, Seymour, Grouse and Hemlock to compete in the two-day (Feb. 23-24) Experience The Podium event. The registration is over double of that of any year previous, which means some exciting competition all the way around.

Events will include Panel Slalom, a Jump, a Speed Trap and a Kombi Race. The Panel Slalom and the Kombi Race will take place right outside the Main Lodge on Whiskey Jack.  Easy viewing for the non-skiers, so come out and watch some inspiring youth ski racing in action!

The MWSC provides a family oriented environment in which members make friends, develop a passion for alpine skiing and alpine ski racing, and achieve excellence in a sportsmanlike culture.
