Gillian McFetridge, Lead Coach for the WMSC U12 Program commented on the legacy of Andree Janyk and the positive, participatory energy of the day. “When I was a teenager, I knew Andree Janyk as “Britt’s mom”. I remember her passion for ski racing and her devotion to the Whistler Mountain Ski Club. I feel confident in saying that our parent volunteers this weekend, many of whom are new to the club, bring an enthusiasm for ski racing that was a fitting tribute. On behalf of the U12’s athletes and coaches, I’d just like to say an enormous thank you for organizing a memorable weekend of racing!”
