Over the Easter long weekend, alpine ski fans can watch live as Hemlock Ski Club’s Katrina Voss represents BC at the 2015 Mackenzie Investments Whistler Cup. Voss is among an elite group chosen to represent Team BC in the U16 category against some of the best youth alpine ski racers in the world.

ViaSport TV has partnered with the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, Mackenzie Investments and Whistler Blackcomb to provide live coverage of the tournament, so friends and families from around the world can watch from home.

Voss will be representing both her hometown of Port Moody and Hemlock Ski Club when she hits the slope this weekend at the Whistler Cup. She has only been skiing for six years. However, in the junior U16 category, she continues to outperform everyone’s expectations. This year, Voss’s home ski mountain (Hemlock) did not open due to lack of snow. She has had to travel every weekend to find snow to train on to be able to qualify for this international race.
