24-25 WMSC HH Team Uniforms Fit Night | pre-order deadline Sunday, Jan 28
We understand that life can get busy, so we’ve extended the pre-order deadline to this Sunday, January 28. This gives you a few extra days to finalize your order for the stylish and functional jackets for the next season. We will have samples at the Club Cabin on Friday and Saturday if you would you like to stop by to try on between 2 and 4:30 pm
The next season’s jacket is an insulated puffy jacket, designed to keep you warm. We highly recommend adding the rain jacket optional item to your order for additional protection. This combination ensures you’re ready for various weather conditions.
Please note that the Club will not be carrying any inventory of the uniform or optional items. We encourage you to spend some time with your racer to carefully decide what you’ll need for the upcoming season. This way, you can place your order with confidence, knowing that you’ll have everything required for a successful season.
Nat Bosa Award | Applications deadline is January 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 (FIS, 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.
