The UBC's Alpine Ski Team will have a new top Bird strapping on skis for the blue and gold this coming winter. Former Canadian National Ski Team member Trevor Bruce was recently accepted to UBC and is excited to join the T-Birds for the up-coming season.
Originally from North Vancouver, Bruce chose UBC over many American NCAA schools. According to the 21 year old, “I knew that UBC had the most competitive university ski program in Canada, and academically none of the schools in the states seemed to fit my goals”. Bruce is entering the UBC Engineering Program this September.
The announcement is a big boost to the UBC Men's Ski Program which finished 10th at the US Collegiate Ski Championships last March. Men's Team Manager Paul Boskovich sees Trevor as having the experience to lead the Men's Team to the podium at the USCSA Nationals. According to Boskovich, the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club alumni, “will raise the competitive bar for the student athletes already part of the program.”
Trevor Bruce has been one of Canada's top junior racers for the past several years and finished 7th at the Canadian Championships Giant Slalom in Whistler last year. Bruce joins the UBC's Ski Team along with former Whistler Mountain Ski Club racers Blake Jamieson and Ashleigh Mclvor.
