Mom's Mountain Classic goes western

It's not Mother's Day, but it's the next best thing. On April 7, Whistler Blackcomb is bringing back its Mom's Mountain Classic race. This year's event will follow a western theme.

The event is open to skiing and snowboarding moms of all ages, and registration includes a morning coffee, race practice, a match-time race, a lunch coupon and an after-party. It also includes a 25 per cent discount for the day to Whistler Kids for moms who pre-register.

The match-time race is two runs through a giant slalom course. After your second run you try to guess your time, based on what your time was your first time down the course.

The cost is $45 in advance at Guest Relations, going up to $55 on race day. You also need to have a lift ticket or pass to participate.
