Led by Olympian Mike Janyk who will return to Grouse Mountain for the final race of his career, the Keurig Cup boasts an impressive field of high-calibre men’s talent including Olympian Morgan Pridy and North Vancouver’s Ford Swette along with Tyler Werry and Sasha Zaitsoff. On the ladies side, Olympian Brittany Phelan, Stephanie Gartner (daughter of Olympian Kerrin Lee-Gartner), Candace Crawford and Roni Remme are confirmed to participate.
Sanctioned by the FIS, Alpine Canada Alpin and BC Alpine, the Keurig Cup Spring Series Slalom at Grouse Mountain is the final stop of nine made across western Canada this season and is the most prestigious race to take place at Grouse Mountain in more than 25 years. As the top race series in western Canada, this season’s Keurig Cup included races at Mount Norquay, Panorama, Lake Louise, Red Mountain, Nakiska, Kimberley and Whistler, and featured more than 40 individual races in all alpine disciplines (Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super-G and Downhill).
“We are incredibly excited to play host to the Keurig Cup Spring Series Slalom this weekend,” said Grouse Mountain general manager Michael Cameron. “With the elite level of competition in store for Sunday and Monday, this is a perfect opportunity for our visitors to see the next generation of great skiers in action.”
