The folks at Panorama Mountain Village and the Windermere Valley Ski Club are gearing up for two big race events to be held on the slopes of Panorama in the next couple of weeks – The K2 Provincial Championships and the CIBC Coupe Nor-Am Cup finals.

“This is a very exciting couple of weeks in racing at Panorama,” said Panorama's On-Mountain Racing Coordinator, Nancy Brush. “It's big for these young athletes. This is where it all begins,” she added.

The K2 Provincial Championships are hosted by the WVSC from March 1st through March 5th. 150 athletes, who are 13 & 14-years-old, are competing for a chance to go to the nationals in Quebec later in the month of March. They will race in Super G (March 2nd), Giant Slalom (March 3rd), the Skills event (March 4th) and Slalom (March 5th).

The CIBC Coupe Nor-Am Cup, the highest-level ski racing series, below the World Cup Circuit in North America, will be held from March 14th
