Thank You from Whistler's Young Freestylers

Comments

Dear Editor,

Whistler Blackcomb Freestyle Ski Club would like to send a huge thank you to all the parent volunteers and sponsors who helped put on the Timber Tour and Super Youth Challenge Freestyle events this past weekend.

Over 200 athletes aged six to 18, from around the province competed in Moguls, Slopestyle and Halfpipe over three days. Thanks to event suppliers Nesters, Slopeside Supply, Le Crepe Montagne, Cliff Bar, Momentum Ski Camps and the Whistler Brewing Company. Huge thanks to Sandra Haziza for organizing a great team of volunteers and to Marek Ujejski for chairing the event for the first time.

Also a big shout out to Cate Webster and her crew from the Whistler Blackcomb Events team, who ensured the park and pipe looked polished to perfection and went off without a hitch. Also to Mick Gannon, Rick Schwinghammer and Stan Kelley for all their help getting the course set up and gear up and down the mountain.

The club's inaugural Family Gala Fundraiser up at the Roundhouse on Sunday night (Feb. 10) was a resounding and sold-out success with close to 500 people attending. Huge thanks to all the people who donated silent and live auctions items and helped the club raise around $20,000. Kudos to the energy and creativity of Lisa Wilkinson, Tracy Bruns, Jen Rainnie and their hardworking volli crew, including the Whistler Soccer Girls, for transforming the ski lodge into a magical venue in just one and a half hours.

Lastly a big thanks to the amazing and enthusiastic Whistler skiers and their coaches — the Ultimates 8's who competed for the first time, the Whistler Freestylerz and the WBFSC competitors — our skiers hauled in 50 medals. Yeah Whistler!

Julia Smart

WBFSC, Event Registrar
