2019 Canada Games Logo   BC Alpine is proud to introduce Team BC for the 2019 Canada Winter Games

From February 15th to March 3rd, Red Deer, Alberta will welcome the nation to the 2019 Canada Winter Games. All Alpine events will take place at the Nakiska Ski Resort during the second week, from February 25th to 27th.  Nakiska is the legacy mountain from the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics!

The 14 athletes (7 boys and 7 girls) filling BC’s quota, and set to represent our province at these games, were selected from the first round of BC Teck Open races (2 GS & 2 SL) held at Sun Peaks, January 10th to 13th. They will compete in four events; Super-G, GS, Slalom and Ski Cross. The Ski Cross competition is scheduled to take place at Canyon Resort near Red Deer on March 2nd.

BC Alpine and BC Adaptive Snowsports are excited work together and attend the Games as one "Team BC" that will include two of BC’s para-alpine development athletes! Visually impaired skier Logan Leach out of Vernon will be racing with his guide Caele Kassa, and they will be joined by teammate Justin Johnson, a sit-skier from the Fraser Valley. Leach and Johnson will compete in Slalom and GS on February 26th and 27th.
