Dulwich College excel at The Canada Cup 2017 Ski Racing Championships, Marmot Basin, Alberta

​It is without hesitation that I report that this year we enjoyed our most successful Canada Cup of the six years to date. 29 boys and four staff enjoyed a busy, active and entirely positive nine nights and ten days between 9 and 17 December 2017. This was not for a single reason, rather a culmination of elements. The excursions and activities outside of skiing were hugely successful, especially 'The Dulwich College Curling Championships'. We enjoyed superb conditions, and skied the entire training camp and two days of racing without injury.  All the boys' skiing progressed dramatically culminating in this year's record number of individual and team medals and awards.

Louis Wright also won a special award 'The Dave Gibson Award' for overall contribution to the races, their school's programme and the event as a whole. I am delighted to also report that over the Christmas break he and his younger brother Archie were both selected for the 'National Schools Skiing Squad' to compete in the BISS Alpine Championships in Italy in February.
