Since 1968 the Whistler Mountain Ski Club has been Developing Champions! WMSC is dedicated to the development of able-bodied and paralympic snow sports (specifically Alpine Ski Racing) from entry level ages to Masters in all disciplines including Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G, Downhill and SkiCross. Each season we anticipate more than 160 young racers to actively participate in our programs. The Club is a not-for-profit organization run by parents and associates. Our members have extensive experience in organizing National and International events and a large selection of athletes on the Provincial and National Teams attests to the premier level of the Club's ski racing programs. Current Canadian Ski Team athletes/coaches and WMSC Alumni include Britt Janyk, Manuel Osborne-Paradis, Robbie Dixon, Michael Janyk, Allison Forsyth, Rob Boyd, Jim Pollock as well as National Ski X athletes Ashleigh McIvor, Julia Murray, Brian Bennett and Davey Barr.
The Club founded the Whistler Cup, which has evolved into a world-class juvenile event. The event attracts over 400 racers from 20 countries, promising some of the best competition in the world for young alpine ski racers. Our coaching staff at the Club is world class with national team level coaching experience. We have a talented and enthusiastic group of Canadian Ski Coaches Federation trained and certified coaches whose positive results in competition over the last few years has rated our program as one of the best in Canada.
