Whistler Spring Invitational
After two years of no Whistler Cup, this year’s Spring invitational was a nice steppingstone to get us back to the full event next year.
We invited a total of 240 U14 and U16 athletes from around the Province, Ontario, and Quebec for 3 days of racing action, a GS, Slalom and Dual team event.
Friday presented a lot of condition challenges for the race organizers and volunteers, with a rain crust that broke through, but thanks to some amazing shovellers, the race got off.
The weather turned in our favour for the weekend and mother nature delivered some of the best racing conditions we could ask for. It was a wonderful year end celebration of racing that pushed the athletes to perform the skills they’ve been working on all season.
We even got to gather for a wonderful social and awards that make it feel like old times, kids meeting kids from other clubs and parents catching up and making new friends.
A big big thank you to all the volunteers, coaches and athletes who made this event run, you are the reason this sport is possible.
