Volunteers needed for FIS BC CUP SG and Parsons Memorial Downhill Race | March 3-8
Calling all speed enthusiasts to help out with the upcoming FIS Speed races (March 3-8). WMSC is the host for this historic race series, named after the late Bob Parsons (our own Jim Parsons and Chris Leighton’s father), ski racer, original race worker and lover of speed. Bob had a vision that BC ski racers needed to learn how to ski speed in a safe and controlled environment.
As hosts of this race series, we all need to contribute – especially FIS parents. There are plenty of opportunities both on-hill and off. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteers need to be double vaccinated. Lunches are provided for full day volunteers.
This is a long race series that includes week days and weekends. Weekday volunteers are especially appreciated. Experience with speed race is essential for course workers and slip crews.
Shout out to WMSC alumni Nathan and Tait!

WMSC alumni Mollie Jepsen on her way to second Paralympic Winter Games
“It’s an honour to be named to the team for my second Games,” said Jepsen. “I’m more nervous this time than last, as I’m more familiar with the experience, but I look to leverage that as I know what it takes to be successful. My goal is to go out there and leave everything on the hill, and use my experience to strive for the podium. If we all (the entire team) ski the way we know we can ski, then we will find success.” Read full story here
