Tyees Make An Impression At Zone Finals

Grouse Moutain Tyee Ski Club athletes showed just how much depth their club had when they competed at the Teck Coast Zone Finals at Cypress Mountain on April 12th and 13th. From personal bests to lots of podium spots, they ended their on-snow season on a high note.

The athletes might have completed their race circuit, but there is plenty of skiing to come next month, including single training days and the Spring SuperCamp on Blackcomb Mountain.

If you haven’t done so yet, now would be a good time to get your calendar out and make plans for summer. Some of the Tichy Camp dates are already posted on our website homepage, and more information will soon be shared about other training opportunities at both Mt. Hood in Oregon and on Blackcomb Glacier. Of course, there will also be weekly dryland training at Mahon Park and Brockton Oval, as well as gymnastics at Flicka and mountain-biking on the North Shore.

One more reminder: the end-of-season banquets are coming up fast, starting with this Friday’s U16/VST banquet—the registration deadline is today! Sign up now and come celebrate another great season of training and racing.
