The slopestyle competition will be joining the other events - moguls, aerials, ski cross and halfpipe - at Deer Valley Resort in Utah in February.

As a world championship sport, Canadian athletes also have the opportunity to earn funding through Sport Canada's Athlete Assistance Program - up to $2,000 a month for elite athletes to assist with training and competition costs.


Mind Over Mountain moves to Burnaby?


It was good while it lasted, but this week the organizers of the Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race announced plans to move their Squamish event to Burnaby, with a course that includes Burnaby Mountain trails and Burrard Inlet to stage the event - as well as facilities at Simon Fraser University. The new location allows for a kayak stage and orienteering stage.

There was no explanation for the change in venue, but organizer Bryan Tasaka thanked the community of Squamish and course-setter Jen Segger for their support.

"I am sad to be leaving Squamish, but hopefully the MOMAR will return one day in the future," he said.

The Burnaby MOMAR will take place on Saturday, May 28.


Wolfpack streak continues


The Squamish Wolfpack's record now stands at three wins, 15 losses and four overtime losses, extending the team's losing streak to 12 games. It's not for a lack of trying, with the team scoring 17 goals in their last six games and matching their opponents shot-for-shot in a lot of match-ups.

On Nov. 11 they lost a shootout 6-5 to North Delta. On Nov. 13 they lost 6-4 to the Richmond. Their next four games are on the road, with an away game at Richmond on Nov. 18, a game at Port Moody on Nov. 20, a game at North Delta on Nov. 27 and a game at Grandview on Nov. 28.

Whistler's Matt Bonin added an assist to his tally in the loss to North Delta, but once again was the team's top player in the shootout. Jaret Babych also scored a hat trick for the Wolfpack in that game.

Against Richmond, Bonin scored added another assist. Konrad Sander and Mico Dragutinovic each racked up a goal and an assist.


Broncos miss play-offs


The Sea to Sky Broncos wrapped up their first season in the North Shore Football League this past weekend, finishing their season in a three-way tie for third. Their scores for the regular season resolved the tie, and the Broncos missed the play-offs by just one point in their match-ups versus the Raiders.
