Whistler Cup Virtual Social | March 8, 7:30 pm
With a little over 40 days until the kick-off of the 30th Annual O2e Brands Whistler Cup, the Race Organizing Committee has been hard at work planning for this internationally recognized event. There are over 400 U14 and U16 athletes expected from over 20 countries and we intend to make the event as spectacular as ever.
To ensure that we can support both on hill and off hill activities, we need over 400 volunteers for the entire week to support the various activities and races. We are inviting you to join us for a virtual social on Wednesday, March 8 at 7:30pm to hear from members of the Organizing Committee, athletes and our Volunteer Coordinators to learn more about this important event and how you can support it. Our goal is to keep the evening to 30 minutes, so consider it a little like speed networking.
The Whistler Cup has a long track record of showcasing future stars and many of Canada’s biggest World Cup and Olympic alpine and ski-cross stars have also graced the event over the years, experiencing international competition for the first time on their journey toward success in life and sport!
