Skiier hosting double fundraiser

Moguls skier Mason Barzilay is hosting a Warren Miller screening in West Kelowna on November 19th.

Mason Barzilay has been hosting Warren Miller films for three years.

Encore Theatre in West Kelowna is the site of an upcoming dual fundraiser.

Freestyle skier Mason Barzilay is hosting her third annual Warren Miller film as a way to raise money for her own skiing career and also the West Kelowna skate park.  This year’s movie is titled ‘Chasing Shadows’ and is Warren Miller’s 66th annual snow sports film.  The film centres around multiple athletes as they pursue skiing and snowboarding on the mountains of their dreams; Chamonis, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch and the Himalayas.

“Not only will this fundraiser be raising funds for my skiing career, but it will also be a chance to raise funds for other athletes, skateboarders on the Westside,” Brazilay said.

Barzilay’s goal is to make the Canadian National Team in moguls, but reaching that level requires quite a budget.  An average year runs a budget of $10,000 to $30,000, meaning the 20 year-old skiier has a lot of fundraising to do when she isn’t in school or training.  The tickets are $15 each, and donations will also be able to be made to the City of West Kelowna for it’s new skate park project.

Doors to the show open at 6pm, and the show itself starts at 7pm on Thursday, November 19th.  Tickets can be purchased Blenz in West Kelowna, 19 at Two Eagles, Clothes Pin Laundromat and Freeride Board Shop.
