Top young cross-country skiers will be at Mount Washington from Feb. 7-8

The 2015 Tech BC Midget Cross-Country Ski Championships will be hosted Feb. 7-8 at Mount Washington Alpine Resort.

The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club has invited ski clubs throughout B.C. to attend this two-day event.

Head coach of the Strathcona Nordics Race Team, Andrea Stapff, views the yearly Provincial Midget Championships as a key event in the development of athletes in our sport of cross-country skiing.

“This event is part of the Teck-sponsored series of races that gives our younger athletes exposure to a variety of fun and age-group-specific distance, sprint and relay races and the chance to demonstrate the skills they have learned during their training. It is always a fun and fast-paced event – exciting for competitors and spectators alike.”

Cross Country BC, the provincial governing body for cross-country skiing in British Columbia, is a non-for-profit, club-based organization of more than 16,000 members.

Cross Country BC offers programs and services to support the continuous development of cross country skiing for all ages and abilities, from introductory experiences to international excellence. Teck Resources Ltd. is the title sponsor of Cross Country BC’s Skier Development Program, thereby supporting excellence in sport and providing youth with experiences that will help them prepare for the future.
