A message from our Marketing and Sponsorship manager, Bob Armstrong
We hope everyone is as excited, as we all are, for the start of yet another tremendous race season at the Club, our 51st!!
Don’t forget the Ski Swap on Oct 12th at the Club Cabin. It is a great environment to buy and sell your used gear while providing a much-appreciated small contribution to our overall fundraising goals! We will be hosting a bbq with provisions supplied by our partner, Creekside Market.
I would also like to inform you that we have a few valuable sponsorship opportunities still available for the coming season. Your company/brand will visually engage with a client base not only in Whistler but throughout the entire Sea-to-Sky and the province. Our objective for these sponsorships is to raise incremental funds to support enhancements to our programming.
If you have any questions or wish more detailed information, please give me a call. Our deadline for new partners is Nov 15th.
Last but certainly not least, we have corporate sponsorships still available for Whistler Cup 2020!

Officials Level 1 and 2 Courses
Each season, we host ski races for all levels of athletes. To host a successful ski race, we require many parent volunteers, on and off the hill, both before and during the race.
The officials courses will teach you how ski races are organized, the different volunteer roles and how you can get involved and be successful.
Adding Team Pages events to your calendar
Parents and athletes, when you receive an event invite from your coaches, please do not decline it. It will remove it permanently form your calendar. Please accept all invites and you can modify attendance at a later time.
Our condolences once again to Mikayla Martin’s family
Her family has started a memorial fund, if you would like to support, please visit Mikayla Martin Memorial Fund
_ Mikayla has been taken from us much too soon. We want to use her shining example to encourage others to live an extraordinary life. We hope that you will help us to do that, and when you do, to take those words to heart and live them every day.
“Do your thing. Do it every day, and do it unapologetically.”_
It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of one of our WMSC alumni, Mikayla Martin, “Miki”. Our collective condolences go out to her entire family during these most difficult times. Miki will always be remembered for her incredible smile, infectious enthusiasm, determination, work ethic and of course her role as a mentor to so many young WMSC athletes.
We are all grieving this immeasurable loss. RIP Mikayla.
