Lightning Creek Ski Club (“the Club”) is a Non-Profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the sport of alpine skiing and to the development of alpine ski racing skills. The Club provides its members with high quality, professional coaching along with the opportunity to compete in local North Zone, inter-zone, and provincial races. We are housed on the premises of Troll Ski Resort but are a separate entity.
A volunteer Board of Directors governs the Club. The Club has two paid coaches. Program fees are not enough to cover the total costs to operate the Club so the Club relies heavily on volunteers and fundraising.
Lightning Creek Ski Club members include children registered in the half day/full day program or the Alpine Program and their parents/guardians. Alumni Memberships can also be purchased. The majority of our membership resides in the Quesnel area, however, the Club has also attracted members from Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. All members of the Lightning Creek Ski Club are members of the umbrella organization BC Alpine.
Our philosophy for the children is simple; we want them to become better skiers while having FUN!
Our Goals are:
To make skiing a lifelong sport
To develop the skiing abilities of our young athletes
To provide quality alpine race training and racing experiences
To provide lifelong benefits for our athletes and their families
To have FUN!
The Lightning Creek Ski Club provides a high quality, safe alpine racing experience. Instilled in the athlete is a sense of responsibility, discipline, team spirit, good sportsmanship, and integrity while teaching successful, competitive alpine racing techniques that will provide lifelong benefits for the athletes and their families.
The season begins in September with dryland training for the Alpine team and the Nancy Greene athletes. On-snow training begins in late November or early December through to April, conditions permitting. Some members have the opportunity to begin training with Fall and Christmas Camps, and then train every Saturday/Sunday (for the 2 day program) and Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday for the 4-day program and Sundays only for the 5-11 year olds, for 11 weeks commencing the first weekend of January.
