Skiing in the Alps is probably on the to-do list for many West Kootenay residents and while it is a lifelong dream for most of us, for 16-year old Adam Kuch that dream is about to come true.
Kuch is one of four 15 to 18-year-old males who will be representing Canada in the Freeride Junior World Championship in Kappl, Austria, Jan. 28 to 31.
He has been training hard for the competition both physically and mentally at competitions at Whitewater Ski Resort and Red Mountain.
“My Whitewater freeride teammates, coaches and my brother Sam Kuch have been challenging me to a new level so I feel ready,” says Kuch. “I’m so grateful to have the support of my sponsors Village Ski Hut and Head skis and my family.”
The competition will be webcasted live on the Freeride World Tour website the day of the competition.
