This time around Parkland Racers Ski Club would like to showcase our amazing athletes and have them share their perspectives of our ski racing family. Here are some of our athletes’ contributions;

Isaac U12: “I like Parkland because I have made a lot of really good friends. I like that it is a smaller club so I don’t have to memorise lots of names. We have really good coaches who are nice and teach us lots of things. I like the challenge of skiing down harder runs and trying out new mountains. I had a lot of fun in Revelstoke at our camp in January. It was a place I had never been and it was super awesome to ski the long runs.”

Christian U8: “I like PRSC because we go fast! We have good coaches! Maria, Peter and Jenel are the best. We ski slalom and GS courses and even ski power in Jasper!”

Megyn U10: “Says she likes skiing with her team because she get to make friends and have fun. Her favourite part about skiing is going around the gates.”

Payton U10: “We have a blast! The coaches are friendly and they train you to be a better skier. Parkland Racers athletes are fast, cool and nice. We have lots and lots of fun all of the time.”


Rees U8: “I like racing because I get to race other kids and work on getting faster. We get medals and ribbons and we get to learn different types of racing like GS and slalom. It is fun to get to ski down different courses.”

Kai U12: “I love skiing for Parkland Racers Ski Club because it’s challenging and fun. I also like Parkland Racers because I get to meet new friends. We get to hang out together, practice and race. It’s awesome!”

Carter U8: “I love ski racing and Parkland Racers because we have so much fun together. We might win or loose but it doesn’t matter. We have fun at practices and at races. I love my coaches they teach me new things, which helps me to be better skier. They teach us all how to do gates the right way. I really like practicing the impossible flush with Rees and Parker. I like racing against them and also my dad. I have a tone of fun!”

So as you can see Parkland Racers Ski Club athletes enjoy the most important part of skiing…having fun. Getting to hang out with other kids and learning an amazing sport that will last a lifetime. We hope our athletes’ testimonies have been able to convey the passion that our club as for this amazing winter sport.
