Mont-Tremblant, January 13, 2010 – Since its beginnings, Tremblant has welcomed the best up-and-coming skiers in Eastern Canada in the 13- and 14-year-old age group for the Taschereau Cup. This weekend, more than 215 young men and women from Québec, the Maritimes, Ontario and the United States are expected to take part in the well-known race.The special slalom will be held on Saturday, January 16th, and a giant slalom will be held on Sunday the 17th.

The oldest competition of its kind in North America, the Taschereau Cup has seen among its competitors skiers who went on to become famous, including Nancy Green, Peter Duncan, Mélanie Turgeon, the Guay family, Geneviève Simard, and even our Tremblant Snow School Director, Donald Lacasse. This competition is organized by the Tremblant Ski Club  and spectators wishing to come and encourage the young racers should be at the base of the Grand Prix slope on Tremblant’s South Side starting at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning.

From its earliest years, Tremblant established a tradition of encouraging young talent and this event is a concrete example. We are proud to be associated with the Taschereau Cup and to Quebec’s young sports hopes.
