Welcome to the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, and for returning members welcome back!
Since the club’s inception in 1968, we have been commited to the development and delivery of exceptional ski racing programs that have supported thousands of aspiring ski racers in their pursuit of athletic excellence. Our mission statement is “developing champions in life and sport” and we never forget the importance of each individual’s personal experience with our club and the sport of alpine ski racing. To that end there are some significant aspects of this season’s program that new and returning members should be aware of. Complete program details can be found on our website and in our parent handbook which should be available by mid October.
Currently, the Whistler Mountain Ski Club offers programs for U12 (10-11 year olds), U14 (12-13 year olds), U16 (14-15 year olds), FIS (16+ year olds). For each category, there are various program options. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office or our head coaches directly with any questions you might have.
The 2017-2018 Program
Member athletes of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club enjoy year round benefits including fitness programs and assessments, tuning room, educational clinics and workshops, access to our fitness facility and exposure to national and internationally successful athletes, many of whom started their career with our club. Training occurs almost every weekend throughout the season at Whistler Blackcomb when the team is not otherwise scheduled away. In addition, regular training is available (and included in all options) during the Christmas break. Mid week training on Thursday and Fridays (others as scheduled) is also available.
