2016 Whistler Timber Tour

The WBFSC hosted another successful Timber Tour and Super Youth Freestyle ski event Jan 29 – 31 with all events taking place on Blackcomb. The weather mostly cooperated this year and all 3 events went off without a hitch – Moguls, Slopestyle and Big Air. Boys Slopestyle which was scheduled for Saturday had to be switched with Sunday’s Big Air due to poor visibility. This was an important qualifier for the Junior National Championships in Ontario in March.

It was great to see so many Club and Freestylers taking part in the events with sadly a few skiers having to sit this one out due to minor injuries.
