“The Audi Canadian Ski Racing Awards are all about celebrating the performances and contributions that have resonated with our ski community here in Canada, and this year’s recipients have certainly made their mark,” said Vania Grandi, president and CEO of Alpine Canada, in an Alpine Canada post about the awards. “Thousands of Canadians took the time to nominate and vote, and that’s a testament to the strength of our ski community.”
Big White Ski Club is a non-profit organization that, for over 60 years, has provided world-class and affordable alpine ski training to children 5 to 16 years old, as well as masters. The club has coached and trained many professional Kelowna-area skiers, including 2018 Olympic Gold medalist and Big White athlete Kelsey Serwa, as well as Big White athlete Ian Deans.
Winners will be recognized November 6 and 7 in Toronto and Montreal at Alpine Canada’s 100th Anniversary celebrations.
