Meet the Weasels & NorAm Social | Saturday, December 10th

On the 10th of December, come out and join us for a fun evening to learn about ski race volunteering from the legendary group, the Whistler Weasel workers. We’ll also share what opportunities are coming up this winter to pitch in and an overview about the NorAm Cup finals that we’ll be hosting March 21st to 28th. This event is open to all age groups and members of the community and though we enjoy time with the athletes, this is an adult only event. Looking forward to seeing you all there and if fortune is on your side, becoming an official Weasel may be in your future too.

Sign up now for the introduction to ski racing course (otherwise known as the Level 1 Officials Course).

You don’t have to have any experience in ski racing; in fact you don’t even have to be a skier. Come out and learn about what goes into making a ski race happen – on hill and off hill.

​This is a great way for parents new to the club to learn about what your kids are doing. And it is an important course to help you understand where you can best volunteer for our Whistler Mountain Ski Club hosted events.
