Have the kids caught some air on skis or a snowboard yet this winter? They can see the pro skiers shred down the mountain in person at the first ever Olympic-style FIS NorAm Cup Parallel Ski Race in the US which will be held in Vernon.

Winter4Kids, a mentor-based program that encourages kids to have fun while learning to ski, is hosting the event on February 14 in partnership with US Ski & Snowboard and the International Federation of Skiing at the National Winter Activity Center. The NorAm Cup is the second highest competition of ski racing on the continent and is typically a precursor to the FIS World Cup.

The kids will be in awe of 120 of the world’s best amateur skiers as they race for prizes as high as $75K. US Ski Team athletes who’ll be competing include two-time National Alpine Champion AJ Hurt, Giant Slalom National Champion Keely Cashman and 2019 World Juniors Silver Medalist Katie Hensien. Supporters of the event and Winter4Kids include Olympic gold medalists Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin.

The competition will be at 44 Breakneck Rd. in Vernon. See the qualifying runs from 11:30 am-2:30 pm and final races from 5-7:30 pm. There will be free public parking at the junction of Rte. 94 and Sand Hill Rd., but attendees will need to be shuttled from the lot to the event. Tickets are free, but visitors should register in advance here.
