The Ski & Snowboard Club and Team was finally treated with a season full of powder and perfect weather. We have grown from 10 students to 65 students in the past five years. What a group!
Ski & Snowboard Club
Students really enjoyed their lessons up at Cypress Mountain this year and improved their skills dramatically. Many of the club members had never skied or snowboarded before. By the end of the season they were carving up the mountain on blue runs.
Ski & Snowboard Team
As for our team, they trained really hard for both slalom and GS terrain competitions this year which brought our female and male snowboard teams close to the provincial championships. Way to go team!
Included below are photo highlights of the club who made weekly visits to Cypress Mountain as well as photos from the competitions for the team. Thanks to Alpha Wong for providing such great photos.
Whistler Grad Trip
There are also a few photos from the grad Whistler trip where students had a choice of skiing, snowboarding or snow tubing. Students at Bodwell have multiple chances to take part in snow sports on the mountain! It is a great benefit of going to a school in Vancouver that we live so close to such beautiful mountains that have great winter sports.
Vancouver: A Winter's Paradise!
Cypress Mountain offers wonderful day and night skiing not far from Vancouver’s centre. In fact, on clear days you can see over Vancouver’s beautiful coast and skyline. Whistler Blackcomb, on the other hand, takes about 2 hours to reach by car or bus and is the biggest ski resort in North America beating the next biggest by more than double in size.
