Awards will be presented to the team and individual who most accurately guess their times, the team with the most consistent times, the racer who most accurately guesses their time and the racer who has the most consistent times on each course.
Prostate Cancer Foundation BC
Prostate Cancer Foundation BC is a volunteer based organization that represents BC’s prostate cancer patients, their families and communities. The Foundation was established in 1998 by a group of prostate cancer survivors who saw the need to raise monies in order to fund and support research into the causes, detection, prevention and the treatment of prostate cancer. To this day event fundraising for prostate cancer research is a primary initiative of the Foundation. The Foundation also provides programs for education, advocacy and to increase awareness about the prevention, detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
The Foundation is a registered charity led by a Board of Directors and an Executive Director, and is supported by its many volunteers.
Mt Seymour Resorts
Mt Seymour is Vancouver’s starting gate to mountain recreation. We offer something for everyone: skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, winter education programs, snow tubing, tobogganing, great food, and special events. Mt Seymour’s elevation and proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides us with the most reliable and consistent snowfall in the region. While snow quality and quantity is important, our most recognized feature is a long-standing tradition of providing fun winter experiences for all abilities and ages!
Located just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver in Mt Seymour Provincial Park, the ski area’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the high base elevation provide a generous average annual snowfall of over 1,000 cm.
The ski area’s 81 hectares of terrain, which includes 40 hectares lit for night skiing, features gentle slopes where beginners will progress rapidly and excel. Advanced skiers and snowboarders will discover challenges and hidden secrets within the area’s naturally contoured slopes, gullies, tree runs, and terrain parks.
Mt Seymour is a one-stop winter activity centre. We are a family-run business guided by a passion for the outdoors and for providing great value and exceptional service. With a long-standing tradition of providing each and every guest with a memorable mountain experience, whether you’re seasoned pro or have never played in snow before, Mt Seymour welcomes you!
