"It’s always exciting to get the season started," said BC Alpine Head Coach Nick Cooper. "After a strong summer in the gym and a solid on-snow prep period, I’m confident heading into the season. I know that everyone has made positive changes in their skiing over the past 6 months, and we are all looking forward to seeing where that takes us."
“I am really excited to see how this team is working together," said BC Alpine Vice President Johnny Crichton. "They are tough, strong and supportive of each other. They all have individual goals, but realize that in order to achieve them they must work together as a team. It’s a powerful lesson and the results are sure to come”
"We are proud to continue supporting the best alpine ski racers in BC by providing a superior program through which they can develop to the next level," said Anders Hestdalen, BC Alpine CEO. "More than 30% of this year’s National team athletes got their start in BC Alpine programs, from BC clubs to the provincial team. This is a number we are very proud of, and the BC Ski Team staff work hard to continue fulfilling their mission to develop and prepare ski racers to perform on the world stage."
