Kimberley, Grouse Mountain, Seymour Mountain, Cypress, SunPeaks, Apex Alpine, Silver Star, Big

White, Red Mountain, Panorama, and Revelstoke.

April.  The Sierra Whistler Cup is the world’s largest ski event for 11-14 year olds and is organized by the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and hosted by Whistler Blackcomb.

The Mount Washington K1 Ski team has had an incredible season so far and has qualified six racers for the K1 Provincials to be held on their home turf and all six are in the running for podium placements.

The Mount Washington contingent for this race includes; Keegan McCooey, Maya Nymann, Logan Frame, Kole Harle, Robbie Yelland and Liam Gilchrist.
