Whistler Cup postponement and follow up plans
Dear WMSC Membership,
Following our announcement of the 2022 Whistler Cup’s postponement, (See link to press release below) we’d like to share an internal note to everyone with our intentions for those dates. It was not an easy call to postpone this event for another year, but with the internationals not ready to commit to travel in the current covid climate, we felt there was just too much uncertainty to make our commitment to move forward with this year’s Whistler Cup.
We do recognize, however, that the up and coming U14 and U16 athletes have been starved for ski racing opportunities and we are going to hold on to the April 7th-10th, 2022 dates to put on an alternate event. We’re working closely with BC Alpine to see what options are available and would best suit this age group in the province. Whether this is a Zone, regional, provincial, or national race, we’re exploring it all for our U14 and U16 athletes on those dates. We’ll keep you posted on the developments.
Thank you for your patience and understanding through this.
