Significance of hosting at RED
Since 2009, Canada has racked up 137 World Cup medals, 6 World Championships Medals, 15 X-games Medals and 3 Olympic medals. This short but rich history is a testament to the brimming talent in Canada. The National Ski Cross Championships brings this ocean of talent to Red Resort and puts it on display during a packed weekend of thrilling racing.
A Fresh Avenue
Ski Cross brings a new light on what has been around us since we started skiing at Red Mountain. It combines our grassroots of ski jumping with the deep passion for alpine racing into an exciting shoulder rubbing racing experience. In 1968, Red Mountain hosted the first FIS Alpine World Cup on Canadian snow. A gold medal performance from Nancy Greene on her home slopes acted as a catalyst that sprang Red Mountain Racers to become one of the most successful ski clubs in North America. The sport of Ski Cross has emerged as a new but familiar face of the ski scene. It creates a fresh avenue for athletes and allows them to branch off from the traditional style of alpine skiing while still sticking to its racing roots. Hosting the 2018 Sportchek National Ski Cross Championships adds another milestone to the long list of significant historic events held at Red Mountain.
