Canadian Alpine Championships - From March 19 to March 26, visitors to Whistler will have the chance to get an up close look at downhill ski racing. 

For Canadian team members, winning the national championship carries prestige, but for aspiring World Cup competitors, performing well at the championship offers an opportunity to increase their International Ski Federation (FIS) points and can also be a stepping stone to the national team. Canadian championship rankings are also an important bench-marking tool for athletes.
