Race invitation

On behalf of Callaghan Valley Cross Country, we welcome you to the 2013 Haywood Ski Nationals at Whistler Olympic Park. The site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the park offers world class racing trails and a picturesque recreational trail system that meanders through old growth forest in the Callaghan Valley.

When not at the race site, athletes will be able to explore the nearby vibrant communities of Squamish and Whistler. Squamish is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and Whistler offers shopping, downhill skiing and resort activities galore. Be sure to check out the free festivities on Sunday night in Whistler village!

This is only the third time the Ski Nationals have been hosted in the Sea to Sky corridor in 20 years – they were held in Vancouver in 1991 at Hollyburn and here at Whistler Olympic Park in 2008. Organizers have been making plans all summer to ensure that this event provides exciting high-level racing and extracurricular activities that will keep you coming back for more!

Stay tuned to this website for more information about the closing banquet at the Whistler Convention Centre on March 30, 2013. We have a crew churning out ideas to make that event fun for all ages and a great wrap up to the competition.

The Haywood Ski Nationals will be the anchoring event for the Sea to Sky Nordic Festival, March 15-31, 2013. There will be over 800 athletes on site during this time for the national championships for biathlon, cross country, and ski jumping/nordic combined. This event will be larger than the Olympics, with more athletes and races in this two week period than were on site in 2010!

We hope you come and catch us in the Callaghan!
