32 Medals for Club Skiers

The WBFSC hosted another successful Timber Tour event welcoming over 160 skiers from around the province to compete in Moguls, Big Air and Slopestyle. This was an important qualifier for Junior National competitions, which take place in March (Moguls) and April (Slopestyle, Pipe and Big Air).

Our local Super Youth kids from the WB Devo program won 31 medals and showed there is a wealth of young talent in the younger age group categories.
