70 young skiers in the Nancy Greene program have pushed the total enrolment in the Revelstoke Ski Club to over 100 skiers this season.

Revelstoke Ski Club registers over 100 members

The Revelstoke Ski Club has registered the most club members in over a decade.

The Revelstoke Ski Club is enjoying its largest enrolment in the past decade, with over 100 children and youths participating this season. Head FIS coach Milan Arsovski says the team has had some solid results so far, and has set goals including podium finishes at big races and hopes to see Revelstoke skiers on the B.C. Ski Team.

“We are a relatively small club, but last year we sent four kids to nationals in Collingwood,” Arsovski said,” “It’s pretty amazing.”

In a telephone interview, Arsovski said six of the racers in the FIS program (ages 15–18) in the club had the potential to qualify for the B.C. Ski Team. On the boys’ side, Arsovski said Dominic Unterberger, Peter Behncke and Lachlan Hicks all had the potential. For the girls, Emily Unterberger, Alix Petit and Jaime Park had the talent to make the B.C. FIS team.

“Hopefully one of them will qualify for the B.C. Ski Team.” Arsovski said. “Hopefully for the next year we will have at least one or two who will qualify.”

For the Kinder program, Arsovski is targeting podium or top-5 or podium finishes this season. “We have a really good chance to have someone on the podium at Apex or Panorama,” Arsovski said.

At the Nancy Greene level, about 14 coaches are leading 70 children through the program this year.

Ski club practice day is Sundays, and they usually set up a course on the Devil’s Club or Wooley Bully runs. Arsovski thanked Steve Bailey and Steve Parsons of Revelstoke Mountain Resort for their help coordinating grooming and ski patrol. “They’re helping us a lot,” he said. “They’re doing an awesome job for us.”

The team also holds two dryland practices at Arrow Heights Elementary each week and also do fitness training with Neil Jones of Trans-Canada Fitness.

Arsovski also thanked the many other sponsors who help the club do what they do.
