After a spectacular second-place finish (Abby is on the right in photo below on the podium) at a Ski Cross event in B.C., Abby McEwen has been selected to represent Team Canada in the upcoming World Junior Ski Cross Championships in Italy.
In the first year of the hybrid Alpine/Ski Cross program at Sunridge, we are very excited that Abby has advanced to this level. She is been working very hard all season and has made the rapid jump to the international level (Abby is the skier on the left in the photo below).
During this trip, which begins next week, she will compete in the Noram event in the U.S, then the World Juniors in Italy, and also compete in the national championships in Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. Our U-18/U-16 coach Remi Poirier has also been selected as part of the team Canada coaching staff.
