Hello everyone,

Saturday is quickly approaching!

We will be meeting at 8AM near the base of the Whistler Creekside Gondola. Race bibs and tickets will be distributed at this time so please don’t be late.

Here is the schedule:

  • 8:00 – Meet at Creekside
  • 8:15 – Load Gondola
  • 8:30 – Warm Up Runs – head to first station
  • 11:00 – Lunch at the Roundhouse – please pack a lunch or send money with your child
  • 12:00 – Visit other stations and free ski
  • 2:00 – Awards at the Garbo Hut
  • 2:30 – Free Ski
  • 3:30 – Download to Creekside
  • 4:30 – Parent Pickup at Creekside

Please make sure that you child is dressed for the weather. The forecast is calling for alpine temperatures to be in the -18 to -25 degree range so make sure your child is dressed in layers (a good thermal base layer – fleece mid layer – waterproof breathable outer shell). It may be a good idea to send up an additional layer in a pack. Balaclavas are also highly recommended. The less exposed skin the better.

We will be closely monitoring the athletes during the day for any signs of discomfort: cold feet / hands and frost bite. We will also ensure that there are plenty of opportunities to go in for water and heat!

We look forward to seeing you there!
