BC Alpine is currently looking for new corporate partners for the Nancy Greene Ski League (up to U12) and for the provincial FIS race series. The three-year partnership with Sporting Life concluded this past summer.
BC Alpine CEO Anders Hestdalen is currently in conversations with several BC-invested companies that share the passion for youth sport, skiing, community building, athletic performance and outdoor activity.
“We believe that the properties we have are attractive, and we are looking for the right partners who share our passion and want to build long lasting relationships like the ones we have with Teck Resources, Haywood Securities, Karbon, Anthem Properties, Greg Gardner and CTS,” he said.
We are looking forward to hosting more than 100 club coaches, executives, official and general members this weekend, October 13-15, at the beautiful Sun Peaks Grand Hotel in Sun Peaks. This year’s Member Summit/AGM is shaping up to be an exciting, informative and entertaining event; we are excited to announce our stellar lineup of guest speakers.
Jack Crawford, Olympic Bronze Medalist – “My journey through the club system”
James (Jack) Crawford was born in Toronto on May 3, 1997. He began skiing with his parents, sister, and cousins at the age of three at the Georgian Peaks Ski Club in Thornbury, Ontario. The Crawford family has a tradition of ski racers beginning with his aunt Judy Crawford Rawley, who was on the National team from 1967-1974 and his father, Angus, and his uncles, following closely behind. Jack attended Primary school and part of high school in Toronto before finishing up at Whistler Secondary in Whistler. In his spare time, Jack loves to surf, waterski, golf, road bike and mountain bike, as well as spend time with his family and friends in Whistler and Ontario. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of spare time! Jack progressed through Nancy Greene, K1, and K2 with the Georgian Peaks Ski Club. In his last year of K2, he moved to Whistler to ski in the mountains as a single year experience. It proved to be a very good experience for him, and his family made the decision to allow him to continue to ski out of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club. He was a multi-disciplined athlete, playing A hockey with the York Mills Hockey Club in Toronto until he was 15. After his first year of FIS and at the age of 17, he was named to the National Development Team, and in 2016-2017, he was named to the senior national team.
