Big White Ski Resort – Announcing the Western Canada Open Ski Cross Series CLICK FOR RACE NOTICE
The Big White Racers Ski Club has been collaborating with BC Alpine and Alberta Alpine to put together an open ski cross series so that existing ski club members as well as members of the public can experience the exhilarating thrill of skiing down the course in groups of 4. The series consists of 4 races (Big White Jan 18-19, Lake Louise Feb 1-2, Prince George March 8-9, and back to Lake Louise Mar 22-23). The first day will involve training and qualification runs; the second day will be set up in race heats of 4 in a knock-out format. There will be a consolation round so every racer will get at least 2 races.
All ski clubs in BC and Alberta can participate; we are hoping to have representation from at least one ski club from Washington State as well. Stanley Hayer, former Olympian Ski Cross racer, will be bringing his Alberta Ski Cross team to compete before hitting the NorAm circuit. The Big White Racers Ski Club is proud to announce that Coach Dustin Koepke will be leading Big White Racer’s ski cross team in the challenge. Two athletes born in 1999 and 2000 competing in the series will be eligible to represent BC in the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George.
This program is eligible for children ages 8 and up; categories will be arranged by age group. Athletes can register online using this link: https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=5869
