This is a weekend event for all levels of skiers, probably considered by most including our Head Coach Brian Hatherly, as "the event of the year!" On the first day of the event all MASD clubs work together to set up several Snow Stars Skills Stations for all U14 athletes (such stations as obstacles, speed trap, pole plant- target, gate clearing, jump-land-turn to mention a few). On that same day the U14 athletes will compete in a Kombi Event, which is a ski race course inclusive of a combination of short turns, SL turns, small GS turns mixed within one longer course.
On the second day of the weekend all levels of athletes will compete in a multi-run SL race.
The Canada Winter Games is coming up. You can see more information at the following link.
You can also see the MASD team selection criteria for the Canada Winter Games here.
The success of our club throughout all age levels is most often demonstrated by Overall Club Champion running, most years. This is only one of the indicators of success in Summit Ski Club. We have Fun while developing skills. We challenge athletes as individuals (athlete-centered approach) using innovative approaches with Canadian Ski Coach Certified coaches.
If you are interested in tuning your skis, we have a couple of videos provided by sidecuts on our How to Wax Section of our website.
(November 19, 2017) The weather has been cold here in Winnipeg for the past number of weeks, but the snow conditions are not quite ready for skiing. So, Summit skiers Nicholas, Scott and William Robinson headed down for some ski training at Copper Mountain in Colorado. They attended a training camp with Tichy Racing. Tichy Racing offers race camps throughout various parts of the year, including the summer months, in Oregon, Colorado and Austria. A number of Summit skiers have attended these camps in the past and have had very positive experiences. Feel free to ask Nicholas, Scott, William or Serena about their time at these camps.

However, we are improving the look and feel of our website by implementing what is called responsive pages. This means the pages adjust automatically based on the device you are using. These pages will look great not only on PC's but also on mobile devices.
(March 17, 2013) The Summit Ski Club captured its 5th Manitoba Cup Club Championship in a row this weekend. The 2013 Manitoba Cup Provincial Finals races were held at the Asessippi Ski and Board Area, near Inglis, Manitoba.
A total of four races were held over the weekend, ending with Sunday's two run GS race, which proceeded under some very winterlike conditions.

The Manitoba Cup Club Championship is awarded based on points accumulated throughout the entire season, by athletes at all levels of the club. Each Summit athlete should feel a great sense of pride in this fantastic accomplishment!
On the strength of her excellent skiiing and dominating results throughout the season, Summit's Tori Hislop was named Manitoba Cup Female Champion. Congratulations Tori, your entire team is very proud of you! Tori is a committed athlete and works hard to perfect here technique. She is also an excellent mentor to the younger athletes.
It was another great season for the Summit Ski Club. Many thanks to the team of committed coaches that provide excellent coaching and skill development for all of our athletes. Of course, as with most sports at this level, the season would not take place without the many hours of work from the large group of volunteers from all clubs that run virtually all of the events! Well done!
It was a beautiful day for a ski race, and the completion of the final leg of the Snow Stars Academy.
All Summit athletes did very well, with Summit Ski Club athletes making many trips to the podium. In the Boys U14 category, it was a Summit Sweep!
Congratulations to all the Summit athletes for great performance at a great race event!
(February 16, 2013) The Manitoba Cup Race #4 (Dual Slalom) Race took place today at Springhill Winter Park. Summit U16 and older athletes (including John Prall, one of the Summit Ski Club parents) were part of a small field of athletes that participated in the race.
The first part of the day was spent in Time Trials, where athletes complete the course one by one.
Once the times are compiled, the competition is laid out and athletes compete "Head to Head" against other athletes. To ensure that each athlete has the same opportunity to win, the racers make two runs. After the first run they switch sides to eliminate any advantage one side of the course might have over the other. In the event of a tie, a third round is run. The winner of that heat moves on to the next round.
(February 10, 2013) This weekend, Summit Ski Club members headed to Bottineau, North Dakota where they were treated to some beautiful weather with warm temperatures, no wind and clear blue skies. Heavy frost on Saturday morning made for some very beautiful scenery. Summit families enjoyed a great weekend with two full days of activities at Bottineau Winter Park.
Athletes trained in anticipation of the Kombi Race and took part in the Snow Stars Stations on Saturday. Our U12 and under athletes were awarded medals based on their results in the pole jumping station, with the athletes enjoying the activities. After the lifts closed, the Bottineau Winter Park hosted a tubing party for the athletes and their families.
On Sunday, the Kombi Race was run. U10 and under athletes competed as teams, while the U12 athletes were in the running for medals. Congratulations to all Summit skiers, for excellent results at this event. Haleigh Eby, Jack Healey and Carter Grycko made it to the podium in the U12 age categories.
(February 3, 2013) On Saturday, the U14 and older athletes from Summit took part in Manitoba Cup Race 1 (Slalom) at Asessippi Ski and Board Area. Our club had some solid podium finishes. Congratulations to Tori Hislop, Sara Telles-Langdon, Maclean Hatherly, Jack Dunlop and Ethan Grycko.
On Sunday the U12 athletes joined the rest of the athletes for Manitoba Cup Races 2 & 3 (GS - Giant Slalom). This speed event lived up to its name with some high speed action on Rollercoaster. Once again we saw some strong showings with Callie Hislop, Jack Healey, Tori Hislop, Sara Telles-Langdon, Anna Blankstein and Maclean Hatherly making it to the podium. A big thanks to all the Summit parents who were able to volunteer and help the events run smoothly.
