The future of the outdoor recreation industry is inviting the Whitewater Ski Resort community to ride out the season in amazing fashion.

The annual SROAMazing Race is all set for Whitewater on Friday when the spring riding vibe will add a disco beat and include a variety of family-friendly activities and challenges. Put on by first-year students in the Ski Resort Operations and Management (SROAM) Program, the team event is inspired by the popular television show The Amazing Race and promises a stellar day of fun.

“It’s amazing that we get to contribute to the legacy of the SROAMazing Race, whilst adding our own twist to it,” says first-year student Georgie Garby. “The race is a vital part of our practical learning and it’s so great that we can provide something for the community.”

Participation in the SROAMazing Race requires teams of four snow-lovers of any age, so get your friends and family together to spend a great day on the mountain. Teams are encouraged to wear their most vibrant and awesome disco-themed costumes while taking part in day’s fun activities. There are prizes up for grabs in a number of categories, including best-dressed.

Entry into the SROAMazing Race is $40 per team with proceeds going towards the Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundary Society. Participation grants you entry into a raffle for numerous terrific prizes. Registration can be done at the Whitewater downtown office before March 31 and at Whitewater Ski Resort on the day of the event.

The SROAMazing Race starts at 11 a.m. at Whitewater on March 31. More information can be found at Facebook @SROAMazingRace or Instagram @Selkirkcollegesroam.
