March 4th, 2012

Today Big White Ski Resort played host to the Sport Chek Ski Cross Open Event. It was a huge success with over 70 athletes varying in age from 7-65yrs.

Travis Firth, Alpine Canada's Ski Cross Competition Coordinator was thrilled... "Everyone had a fantastic day on course, great day of competitive racing, there were lots of very close finishes. A very big thank you to Big White Ski Resort and the event staff for hosting the event. A special thank you to Flynn Seddon, Chris Smylski and their crew for all their hard work, as well as the volunteers for their time and effort, we wouldn't be able to have had such a successful and fun event without them. Thank you Sport Chek, TELUS and Keurig for their delicious coffee, which kept us warm and energized throughout the day."

The Big White Racers had a great day with Ski Cross World Champion Kelsey Serwa starting all the races and cheering them on. Serwa then came down to present all the winners with the prize medals and helped with the draw prizing.
