Over 150 freestyle ski athletes will be at Mount Washington Alpine Resort this week to participate in the BC Freestyle Ski Association’s Provincial Championship, hosted April 3-6 by Mount Washington Freestyle Ski Club (MWFC).

 

The event features three days of competition; freestylers 12 years of age and older will compete in mogul, slopestyle and dual moguls during this grand finale event of the 2014 Timber Tour. Super Youth athletes (ages seven to 12) will be judged separately in three events including moguls, big air and slopestyle. The competition starts Friday and is open to the public.

“Mount Washington is excited to be hosting B.C.'s best up-and-coming freestyle skiers this week,” says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing for the resort. “We've been busy preparing the mountain to welcome athletes from across the province.”

The MWFC is reporting that athlete registration numbers are strong for the year-ending event. “Several athletes from the Yukon are travelling to Vancouver Island to join their B.C. counterparts at the Provincial Championships,” notes MWFC president Lee Pond.

 

British Columbia hosted several provincial and national freestyle skiing events in 2014 thanks to the dedication of our freestyle club volunteers, host mountains and generous partners! BC Freestyle Ski Association and Mount Washington Freestyle Club gratefully acknowledge the ongoing support of Hosting BC and ViaSport.
