Off To A Great Start! »

SMITHERS, B.C. – Snow lovers from across Northern B.C. came together in Smithers for the Teck Regional Snow Camp (Northern BC) from December 15th to the 17th. A record number of skiers, coaches, and coach support from the Junior Racers made the camp a high energy success.

With snow a little scarce in most communities, 70 skiers from Williams Lake, Prince George, Burns Lake, Witset (Moricetown), and Terrace came to visit.  Many guests slept over in the recently renovated day lodge.

The camp featured technique sessions in small groups, time trials, ski tours on the trails, great home-cooked food, hip-hop dancing, and even a skiing ballerina! Yes, the ski season is off to a great start in Northern B.C.!

 Thanks to Lisa Perry and Graeme Moore for their professional coaching, and to all of our wonderful volunteers!
