Alpine Canada – Calgary, Alta. (April 16, 2016) – The 2016-17 season marks a World Championship year for Alpine Canada Alpin’s (ACA) teams, all of which are gunning for and have potential to be podium contenders. ACA announces 35 richly talented alpine, para-alpine and ski cross athletes, who will form the respective national teams that will storm the World Cup circuits, throwing themselves down icy pitches and off massive features to chase podium finishes for Canada. 

The veteran athletes named to the teams include Olympic and World Cup medalists, Crystal Globe winners and Nations Cup champions, along with fresh faces that offer a bright future for Canadian ski racing.  

Athletes from all three teams will be hitting the gym and snow over the upcoming months in preparation for the 2016-17 competition season. Be sure to follow their journey on their social channels or through ACA’s official InstagramFacebook and Twitter handles and website. We’ll be sharing athlete stories and updates right through until the season kicks-off. 

“Congratulations to all of the athletes named to the 2016-17 national teams,” said Mark Rubinstein, ACA President and CEO. “Every team member has demonstrated tremendous dedication, perseverance and talent. After last season’s impressive accomplishments, including a Nations Cup victory, 43 World Cup podiums and 3 Crystal Globes, across our Canadian Ski Cross, Para-Alpine and Alpine Teams, I’m confident that the best is yet to come. With a legion of support behind our athletes, including world-class coaches and technicians, medical and sport science staff, and other dedicated ACA staff, we expect another great year on top of the podium!”
