Olympic Park 2018

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

We had a wonderful trip to Whistler Olympic Park yesterday evening at our 4th and final cross country skiing event of this year. For most of students, it was their  first time experiencing cross country skiing. There was a lots of laughter and few crashes! Whistler Olympic hosted the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games competitions in Jumping, Nordic Combined, Cross Country Skiing and Biathlon. Our students will be creating unforgettable memories at the park for years come.

  

Happy Holidays!

Cold weather and blue skies prevailed on this fun filled day on the mountain. The season so far has been a snow lovers dream. Heavy snowfall followed by continuous sub zero temperatures has kept the snowpack in pristine condition. Students followed freestyle coach Robbie was able to shred adventurous new terrain with some locals and hidden secret spots. Stay turned for more events coming up!

We took Advantage of locals night (sweet $5.-deal) for our first x-country adventure of the season at Callaghan Olympic Park just 15 min. from Whistler. Boasting the largest x-country terrain in North America and including facilities for Ski Jumping and Biathlon. This was one of the main venues during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Conditions were soft-packed and the tracks were exceptionally well-maintained. Pat did an excellent job at leading our team of first-timers while giving us helpful tips along the way.
