Over 240 athletes and coaches from all over the province survived a heat wave and a deteriorating glacier for the most successful BC Alpine B2B
“Super Camp” yet. Eleven athletes from the national ski team spent three days with the BC club athletes on the Horstman and Showcase glaciers.

“To have the national team on the hill helping train our athletes and passing on their secrets of success is a major highlight for all of our club athletes,” said Gordie Bowles, Program Director and camp coordinator. “We certainly had to deal with marginal conditions but the coaches did an outstanding job creating a positive environment. I believe the athletes learned a lot this week and hopefully they can take these tools into their
next training opportunity.”

The attending national team athletes were: Dave Anderson (Rossland), Britt Janyk (Whistler), Emily Brydon (Fernie), Jeff Hume (Whistler), Manuel Osborne Paradis (North Vancouver), Christina Risler (Whistler), Christina Lustenberger (Invermere), Mike Janyk (Whistler), Scott Hume (Whistler) and special guests Brigitte Acton from Sault Ste Marie and Sherry Lawrence from
Edmonton.
