Hundreds of speedsters descended on Marmot Basin last weekend for the 41st Jasper Junior Olympics.

The epic weekend of races saw young athletes from across the province compete to win coveted Olympic bells.

And Jasper athletes took some of the top spots. 

Day one had racers compete individually on two different courses over two runs. The four- and five-year-old athletes had two fun runs on a course on School House while the older athletes took part in Giant Slalom events on Dromedary. 

That day, Jasper skier Alexis Lahaie won first place in the age six men’s lower course race and Charlotte Bisaillon won third in the women’s. For the age seven’s, Elliot Vassallo won first place in the men’s race.....

It's almost November and 

the Officials Calendar is out! 

As we gear up for another ski season, and another Jasper Junior Olympics, we are excited to share the Officials Calendar. We know a race of this caliber takes many, many volunteers to ensure it runs smoothly and safely.  This is your opportunity to learn more about the Volunteer positions available at all of our Alberta Alpine races. 

There is no cost to you to attend these seminar, but they are crucial to everyone who is inside the fence on race day.

Click photo for Full details! Hope to see you here.

*You will notice there is no Level 1 course on this schedule, don't worry majority of Edmonton Clubs will be hosting a Level 1 at the beginning of the season so stay tuned!
