Revelstoke Mountain Resort hosting high school skiing championships

Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be playing host to the B.C. high school skiing and snowboarding championships this March.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be playing host to the B.C. high school skiing and snowboarding championships this March.

Nakusp Secondary School and Salmon Arm Secondary School are serving as joint hosts of the annual championships, which are being held at RMR for the first time from March 2–4.

Dan Sculnick, who is organizing the event for RMR, said the Revelstoke Ski Club will be helping out with marshalling the races.

The championships includes giant slalom, slalom and a skier/snowboard cross race.

Before anyone gets too excited about the prospect of a snow-cross course being built at RMR, Sculnick described it as more of a giant slalom course with berms and jumps than a full-on snow-cross course. And instead of four racers going down at once, riders will hit the course one at a time.

Anywhere from 200-400 racers are expected to attend the championships. Each school is allowed to send 24 racers — six male skiers, six female skiers, six male snowboarders and six female snowboarders.

Revelstoke Secondary School will be assembling a team to take part, said Kathy Hoshizaki, the school’s director of athletics.
