Hello GKHAT families,

The Officials Level 1 Course, which was supposed to be help on March 17, had to be postponed. This course is now being run on this up and coming Friday, March 24, at 5:30 pm at the Golden Search and Rescue Boardroom located at the Golden Airport.

If this date works better for you to be able to attend, please sen Ryan an email at headcoach@gkhat.ca

Having certified officials in the club is absolutely essential to our future success in hosting zone races. If you are available and you are keen to get involved, we would love to have you attend.

Thank you… and sorry for this rather short notice!

Hello GKHAT Families,

Not so long ago, we were lucky enough to have Eddie the Eagle come visit the Kicking Horse Ski Resort. On top of that, he participated in providing the kids with their awards at the end of our Nancy Greene race event. A good number of kids (and a few adults) took the opportunity to meet and talk with Eddie. It was a great opportunity to learn how Eddie achieved his goals.

This coming weekend, on March 18, you’ll have another chance to learn more from some great skiers. Evidently GKHAT Coach Angela is not only famous for being the awesome skier and coach that we like to have, her legacy is one of great skiers.

On Saturday March 18, at the end of the ski day, drop by the yurt to meet up with Angela’s parents. It will be a great chance to learn their stories and path to becoming a great ski family. Follow this link to check out an article about their before you come out.

Kudos Angela…

Oh yeah… We would like to say congratulations to Angela on their new baby skier as well!

Hello GKHAT families,

Having come off another successful race event which could not have been done without the help of volunteers, we are looking to get a few more folks signed up for the Level 1 officiating course.

GKHAT has the long term goal of hosting official zone races. In order to achieve this goal, we need a volunteers that are trained in running an officiating a ski race. Now is a good time to sign up for this. At no cost to you, we will be able to offer you the Level One Officials Course. We will need at least six participants for this to happen!

On Friday March 17, Mark Shwenk, the BC Alpine Officials Chair, is available to come to Golden to teach this three hour course. We expect to offer this on the afternoon or early evening.

The location for this course has not been finalized. However, it will be help in town on Friday March 17 starting at 5:30 pm and run for approximately three hours.

Follow this link in order to sign up. Having more volunteers trained in officiating increases the likelihood of achieving our goal of hosting the zone race next season.

Ryan Ford
GKHAT Head Coach
