Calgary, Alta. (December 21, 2015) – Alpine Canada Alpin is excited to announce 17-year-old Reece Howden from Chilliwack, B.C. and 17-year-old Zoe Chore from Kimberley, B.C., will be representing Canada at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in ski cross.

“We had 15 athletes trying out in Sun Peaks, BC for the two Canadian spots for athletes competing in ski cross at the YOG,” said Ski Cross Athletic Director, Willy Raine, of the selection process. “The skill level these two athletes demonstrated was very strong and Canada will be very well represented with Reece and Zoe.”

This year’s Youth Olympic Games takes place February 12-22, 2016 in Lillehammer, Norway. The YOG will give younger athletes the opportunity to learn about high performance sport, meet Olympic champions and role models who will share their experiences with athletes.
