Nancy Greene-Nat Bosa Award | Application deadline Jan 31st
Nancy Greene – Nat Bosa Bursary: Nancy Greene played an instrumental role in starting the Blackcomb Ski and Snowboard Club (which merged into WMSC) and in supporting the Canadian junior skier development program. Nancy has continued to be a great supporter of ski racing in Canada over the years. Nat Bosa and his companies have provided the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and the Blackcomb Ski and Snowboard Club with financial assistance for the construction of both ski cabins and have continued to support WMSC and our athletes over the years.
To recognize the tremendous contributions of Nancy and Nat in support of ski racing in Whistler the Whistler Mountain Ski Club created the Nancy Greene/Nat Bosa Bursary. These funds are intended to contribute towards coaching fees, travel expenses, equipment costs and other expenses related to the development of our ski racers. To qualify an athlete must be active in a Club program (U18/U21, U16, U14, U12), BC Team or National Team. The Board of Directors has appointed a committee to administer the Bursary and athletes should submit their requests, in confidence, to the committee by the end of January.
Awards are announced in February and funds applied to the recipient’s racer account. Award criteria include perceived financial need, program costs, the athlete’s character and skill level, and parental volunteerism.
Apply to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is Tuesday, January 31st.
30th Telus Winter Classic |March 3-4 | Buy a Ticket or Register a Team
The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Telus Winter Classic is celebrating their 30th anniversary; and it is time to put a team together of buy tickets.
The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation are an incredible organization who support most good causes throughout the Sea to Sky corridor and they are incredibly important to the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and our community.
Not only did they donate $250,000 towards the construction of the Dave Murray National Training Centre which provides us with a world class racing and training venue, but they also donated to our new Timing Hut.
The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation have also pledged $300,000 as the Legacy partner in the construction of housing that we will be able to rent to our coaches.
The Telus Winter Classic is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser, and it also happens to be a great couple of days! Therefore, I would like to encourage anyone who would like to enter a team or buy a ticket to the Winetastic event at the Fairmont, or the Gala event at the Whistler Conference Centre.
Many thanks for your support of the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and the great causes that they support in return.
