The Legends Classic
For the sixth consecutive year, Tremblant invites all levels of skiers, aged seven to 80+, to participate in a giant slalom fun ski race. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame & Museum, which will eventually be moved to behind the Saint-Bernard Chapel at Tremblant.
On March 2, the skiers will race down the Erik Guay run on the South Side in this friendly competition that was first run in 2014 for Tremblant’s 75th birthday. The race is not only for skiers of all levels, but for all ages. Participants will be divided into three categories: Juniors (7 – 17 years of age); Adults (18 to 59); and Legends (aged 60 +).
There is one run only on a giant slalom course and the racers with the 3 best times in each category will be awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. The male and female who achieve the day’s best times, overall, will each have their name engraved on the André Charron Cup.
Awards will also be handed out at the medals ceremony hosted by Peter Duncan, former member of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. New this year: those who wish to attend the ceremony, which will be held at 4 p.m. in the Chalet des Voyageurs, are invited to wear period ski clothing, and there will also be a prize for best costume.
Those interested in participating in the Legends Classic can register online, by March 1 at the latest, on the website skimuseum.ca. Those wishing to volunteer their assistance with the event are asked to contact Jane Chisholm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
