The Disabled Skiers CN Challenge Cup Race turns 20 this year with a slalom race on Whistler Mountain for recreational skiers on Sunday, March 2.
The event raises funds for the Disabled Skiers Association of B.C., and goes towards the purchase of specialized equipment and supports learn-to-ski programs, instructor clinics, and opportunities for people of all ages and abilities across the province to enjoy the sport of skiing.
The cost is $600 for a team of three, and includes a lift ticket, lunch at Pikas in the Roundhouse, and chances to win great prizes during the apres-ski ceremony. There are also complimentary team photos and souvenir racing bibs.
Each racer gets two runs of the course. After the teams first run, each racer must guess a time for the second run. The team with the least difference between their guesses and their actual time wins.
Registration is at the Garibaldi Lift Co. starting at 8 a.m., and the first races start at 10 a.m.
