WMSC Try out Day | Saturday, April 8
For all strong skiers, born in 2012 and 2013 (10 and 11 years and old) from RDP and any program who are interested in taking their technical skiing to a new level and try out ski racing. The Ski up day is an opportunity to try and learn about the Whistler Mountain Ski club, training on the Dave Murray National Training Centre with our professional ski racing coaches.
This day gives potential Whistler Mountain Ski Club athletes a chance to try the club out for a day and get a feel for if they would like to join the program next year. It also gives the parents and opportunity to meet some of the staff and learn about the program.
