More international participants than ever took part in an international set of races at Big White Ski Resort on the weekend in a fun-filled event that puts the focus on meeting people.
The 2nd Annual Big White Ski Club Intercontinental Cup took place on Saturday with a record number of international participants from New Zealand and Australia, as well as racers from the Big White Ski Club itself, totaling 198 participants.
The event saw racers hit the Dual GS Slalom course on the Lower Paradise run from the Under-8 category all the way through to Under-18.
The event is designed for local racers to build relationships with the visiting Australian and New Zealand race clubs on and off the course with the BBQ lunch held at the Big White Ski Club cabin and the awards ceremony in the Happy Valley Day Lodge.
“We’re really pleased with how the event has grown in such a short amount of time. This year was bigger and better than ever and the racing conditions were great today,” said Josh Foster, director of snow sports at Big White Ski Resort.
“I’d like to thank the Big White Ski Club, the international participants, volunteers and all of the sponsors for making this such a great event.”
