U10 ALPINE SKI & SNOWBOARD PROGRAMS

Welcome to the 2017-2018 U10 Ski & Snowboard Season

As we get ready to hit the slopes for the 2017-2018 ski and ride season, we would like to welcome all the families of S.S.S.C. athletes to another exciting year of team building, skill development, safety awareness and instilling a lifelong love of being out in the mountains.
The Smithers Ski & Snowboard Club (S.S.S.C.) is a family organization that encourages family participation, athlete development, personal growth and team spirit. We sincerely hope and appreciate that the whole family will be involved to support the S.S.S.C. athletes to reach their own personal goals and team goals.
