UBC TSC Alpine Ski – Road to National Championships

Help the UBC Alpine Ski Sport Club travel to Lake Placid, New York, to compete in the US Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Nationals!

Story Description

Returning to the USCSA Nationals is our goal for the season! It is where the best universities from across North America come together and race for the title – USCSA Champions. We are especially driven to qualify for Nationals because we are the only Canadian team in the circuit, making us proud to represent both our country and our school. This year the competition is across the continent in Lake Placid, New York; and we are determined to bring as many of our athletes with us. This is where we need your help!

Challenges & the Impact of Your Support

As a Thunderbirds Sport Club, our funding is primarily from the athletes and your generous donations. As full-time students, we work extremely hard to prioritize our academics while fitting in training for competition. Aside from school and skiing, we are completely student-led, dedicating our additional time to managing all aspects of our team from travel logistics, finances, administration, partnerships and alumni, to marketing and events. Your support would help our talented teammates make the significant financial commitment needed to fly across the country to Lake Placid and compete for a spot at the podium at the National Championships.

About the UBC Alpine Ski Sport Club

While the UBC Alpine Ski team is one of the oldest student groups on campus, our current team of 25 members is organized by 6 dedicated student athletes, all of whom have worked hard to earn a spot on a National stage. Our sport may be an individual one, but we are a tight knit community with strong bonds amongst one another and with our alumni. We wouldn’t be where we are today, as one of only two Canadian Universities with a remaining competitive ski team, without the unwavering commitment of our supporters. We are determined to keep our team as strong contenders by training a minimum of twice per week, whether it is in the gym or on the hills at Grouse Mountain. We’re excited to uphold the legacy that has been created for us, while constantly striving for excellence and maximizing the potential our team has to offer this season.
