The Telus Nancy Greene Corporate Challenge returns to Sun Peaks Resort for its 16th year Feb. 17 and 18 and, according to Olympic champion and the event’s namesake, it’s a lot of fun for beginner and expert skiers alike.
“It’s still as fun as it ever was,” grins Greene. “Even if you can only snowplow a blue run, you’re still welcome to join!”
Since its inception in 1997 the event has raised over $350,000 to support the Sun Peaks Health Association, the Royal Inland Hospital Emergency Department and the Sun Peaks Junior Racers.
Teams of four will race a giant slalom with the best individual time counting as the team total. Racers will compete for one of three cups: Rosedale Cup for racers 60 and over; the McSporties Cup for those 50 to 59 and the Telus Cup for racers 19 to 49.
This year, Greene is encouraging part-time residents of Sun Peaks to join in the fun.
“If you own a home up here I encourage you to register a team,” she says.
For $600 per team racers will enjoy a pre-race party, breakfast and lunch, the race and an evening celebration. Registration will be accepted until Feb. 14, 2012.
