Calling all WMSC Families – U12 – FIS
WMSC U14 and U16 Spring Invitational – Thursday, April 7 – Sunday April 10, 2022
The Whistler Mountain Ski Club is hosting the 2022 U14 and U16 Spring Invitational Thursday, April 7th through Sunday April 10th and we need all parents to volunteer for this event! Now is the time to ensure you are getting in your volunteer days!
This is a large event (with over 300 racers) and will require the participation of all parents from U12 through to FIS! On Friday and Saturday will be running two races simultaneously (Slalom and GS) and that will require a mountain of on-hill and off-hill volunteers, even in the weeks leading up to the race! Almost all on-hill positions are open – assistant starters, manual timers, gate judges, course crew, slip crew, bib collectors. We have an immediate need for Chief of Race Office administration as well as many race office workers who can jump in and lend a hand!
If you are interested in planning the athlete/volunteer social (yes we can have social events again!!) please let me know. There is something for everyone off hill and on hill. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot. Please note, that while we will do our best to accommodate your request – we may ask you to move into another role to make sure we have all areas covered.
We’re ready to remind everyone coming from across Canada that the Whistler Mountain Ski Club knows how to put on a fabulous races series!

Spring Training | Mark you calendars
As we are approaching the end of the 2021/22 season we are welcoming the 2022/23 season. We are very lucky to have access to training during May and June which will be marking the beginning of our new season and athletes will move up to their new age teams. We will take a short break and start our spring Camps on Blackcomb during May and move on to the Whistler T-Bars in June. This will allows us a return to the fundamentals in skill based training environments with great turnaround times in the T-bars. We will go for high volume and lower intensity sessions training drills and learning the timing and the line that are essential in gate training.
