NOTE: This program is part of the U14/16/18 for the 2019/20 season.
You’ve probably seen it on TV and this action-packed and adrenaline-fuelled sport made its Olympic debut as a medal sport at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver-Whistler. With one of the best ski cross courses in Canada, our Big White Ski Cross team offers an exciting program in a fun and safe environment.
New to racing? No race experience is necessary for advanced free-skiers - by coach approval only. We leverage the ski cross track for development, but we also use the whole mountain at Big White to create well equipped all around skiers.
If you are interested in an exciting head to head format on a course with multiple terrain features such as rollers, banked turns and jumps, then this program is for you!
Our club has 2 vans which our head coaches use to shuttle athletes who need rides on ski training AND race days. This allows families to have their athletes attend even on days when the rest of the family may not be able to get to the hill! The cost to ride in the van will be deducted per trip from each athlete's Racer Account .
Racer Accounts are a banked fund for each racer, used for van rides and "race fees". Within the "race fees" are the lift tickets, coach expenses, entry fees among other costs.
Any funds in YOUR Racer Account which are not used during the season will be reimbursed at the end of the race season. Racer Account amounts are based on age category and will be announced at the family info meeting each fall, the amount may change year-to-year based on expected costs and fundraising income to the club.
The Racer Accounts are to be paid:
** online payments are available from the website through a specific payment form labeled "RACER ACCOUNT" (coming September 2019)
NOTE: Effective 2019/20 season, Raffle tickets will no longer be paid from the Racer Account. Raffle ticket costs will be pre-paid at time of registration. Selling the tickets will be the same as before, when you sell your raffle tickets, you will keep the money and only return the stubs. ALL STUBS MUST BE RETURNED! Racer Account amounts have been adjusted to accommodate this change.
