Presented by Helly Hansen, the Audi 2018 Canadian Ski Racing Awards is now live
Calgary, Alta. (February 1, 2018) – Alpine Canada is pleased to announce the return of the Audi 2018 Canadian Ski Racing Awards, presented by Helly Hansen. The annual awards celebrate and recognize outstanding performances and contributions to skiing and ski racing in Canada.
Athletes are the cornerstone of success at Alpine Canada. Their dedication, perseverance and paramount skill put them on the podium, but their success would not be possible without the tireless contributions from coaches, volunteers, ski clubs, resorts and the many stakeholders who give back to our sport.
With a massive 2018 season for the alpine, para-alpine and ski cross team, including participation at the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, Alpine Canada is excited to recognize outstanding performances by athletes on the world stage, and from supporters in the ski racing community who stood behind the athletes to help them reach their goals.
Join us in recognizing all contributors to Canadian ski racing successes, from the National Team through to the grassroots level.
