Whistler hosts technical championships


On April 9 and 10, Whistler-Blackcomb hosted the first ever Canadian Technical Ski Championships, testing skills over a range of terrain. The components of this competition were a run with big turns, a run with short turns, a mogul run and a GS race.

The event was a huge success. According to Richard Potter, Manager of Blackcomb Adult Ski School and an event competitor, there was great skiing, and great participation from teams from all over the world. He hopes that it will be the start of an annual event.

The Whistler/Blackcomb Ski School would like to thank everyone who volunteered and participated in the technical skiing competition.
