To make the top-100 of nearly 1,000 applicants, Rochon had to fill out an online questionnaire. "The questions really reflected them and what they are looking for in individuals that will be representing their companies," said Rochon, who directs Whistler-based Dynamic Core Fitness. "Some of the questions were very interesting and definitely made you go ‘hmm’."

To make the top-10, Rochon has to submit a five-minute video showcasing her work and commitment to fitness. The videos will be reviewed by Santana and Kaplan, who will announce their short list by the end of October.

Women’s soccer clinic Sunday

Wax Days are upon us

For the third year, Alpine Canada Alpin and ski clubs across Canada will be hosting Pontiac GMC Ski Wax Days.

Clubs will be hosting a Wax Day in their area, and anyone is welcome to have their skis and snowboards waxed by club skiers in exchange for a donation. Last year clubs raised more than $30,000 by waxing over 1,000 skis and boards.

All proceeds will go towards purchasing new training equipment, hosting races and helping local athletes. Participants at each location are also eligible to win an Atomic race package worth $250, and a bib signed by members of the national team.

The Whistler Mountain Ski Club is a participating club. Dates will be announced once they are finalized.
