Kickstart Ski Camp at Sun Peaks

From Wednesday November 29th to Sunday December 3rd our U12 and U14 athletes had an excellent beginning to the season at Sun Peaks. Sun

Peaks focuses the mountain for race training at this time of year, attracting many ski racing teams including some

from Eastern Canada. Our skiers accomplished a high volume of technical free-skiing, drills and drill courses with progressions of challenge. The athletes were also exposed to other areas such as ski tuning, nutrition, physical prep, etc. in a team environment creating a great experience to start the season!


Racing 101

For our kids, races are broken into three levels : zone races, provincial races and Whistler Cup. Zone races are local and require very little travel, Provincial races require slightly more travel. Whistler Cup is an international race with the some of the best U14/U16 athletes from across Canada and the world.

In the Coast Zone races athletes have an opportunity to see how they fair against other clubs within our zone.There are six clubs within our zone Whistler, Mount Washington, Cypress, Grouse/Tyee, Seymour and Hemlock. At a provincial level there are about 25 clubs consisting of 4 zones (Coast zone, Okanagan zone, Kootenay zone and North zone).

When we race at a provincial level our athlete’s start in order of their zone ranking which is based on their national points.
