Once again, Smart takes his skis to the World Ski School Championships. Canada, Snowsport instructors, Silver Star Mountain Resort and Big White Ski Resort are proud to announce Steve Smart’s 2nd place standing in the Men’s World Ski School Championships hosted in Whistler.

The two day event kicked off Saturday, April 16th with the Bumps and an unexpected 36 centimetres of new snow having to postpone the Short Turns till the next day. Sunday consisted of Short Turns and Mixed Radius and ended with the GS Race.

After spending another season in the champagne powder and steep sides at Silver Star, Smart’s talent and passion shine through when he charged out the gates this last weekend. “It has been a great experience skiing against some of the best ski instructors in the world,” says Smart. This successful event brought out champions from all parts of the world!
