A delegation of five Master biathletes from our club (Petra Gier, Richard Blanchet, Pierre Martin, Jordan Laker and Pierre Duflon), accompanied by coaches Etienne Letondeur and Munro Duncan went to Quebec during the first week of February 2015 to participate in the Winter World Masters Games. This was the first international competition that Sea to Sky Nordics members have participated in.
The races took place on the Valcartier military base 30 km north of Quebec City.Read more →
Due to the unseasonal warmth and lack of snow at Whistler Olympic Park this winter, the local organizing committee for the National Ski Jump Championships have determined that the event will not be able to proceed as planned in Whistler.

Instead, the event will be held at Calgary Olympic Park.
Thanks to everyone on the organizing committee and to all the volunteers who were ready to help out at the event.…Read more →
