Mike Janyk and Manuel Osborne-Paradis, the two Candians World Cup racers, organize each year a camp in Whistler for the kids. Check out the videos of these four amazing days!
In the mist and the Fog we had another exciting day on the hill. May I present day two of the Mike and Manny ski camp. Today we're giving you an insight into the coaching and technical aspect of what we're up to.
Providing an environment for the kids to learn and excel on their skis is what this camp is based on. Around that we strive to challenge them, keep them excited and open them up to new experiences. Here's a look at some of our off hill activities...
It is the final day of the 2013 Mike and Manny Cowboy's ski camp. The skies opened up for us on Whistler Mountain, the condition cooperated and we set a challenging day of GS training for our racers. This resulted in some awesome turns and a few good spills and a lot of smiles at the bottom of the course. Each year Manny and I come away feeling more rejuvenated and inspired to grow for the future. Not only with this camp but also extending our reach to underprivileged youth through the sport of skiing with the newly formed Mike and Manny foundation. www.mikeandmanny.org
I hope you enjoy our last video edit for 2013 and thank you everyone for your kind notes in response to our videos to date.

Adeline Baud ends third of the overall ranking even if the French racer has not finished the season due to a knee injury. The junior slalom bronze medallist finishes second of Europa Cup Giant Slalom standings with three victories and third in Super Combined.
After Cortina D’Empezzo (Ita) and Kijima Daïra (Jnp), the last stage ofthe
"Master Cup" is held in one of the most attached to the Alpine Skiing competition, Kirchberg inTirol (Aut)
The weather condition wasgreat this weekend in Kirchberg and over 30 avid skiers were present to express themselves on the trail of Gaisberg extremely well prepared for the event.
This challenging course, training track of Canadian national team, Jure Kosir, almost on the land, (winner of slalom hahnemkamm 1999) could give some valuable tricks to all master and very good skiers.
Nikki Lindner from Germany was the fastest and was really close to Jure’s time, but the “Master” is still unbeaten !
For the last stage of the season, Tessa Worley and Lara Gut from Team Rossignol end on the podium of the Giant Slalom in Lenzerheide. 2013 Giant Slalom World Champion Tessa Worley was first after the first run but she finally finishes second behind the unbeatable Tina Maze. She closes her season with the fourth position of the Giant Slalom World Cup counting four podiums, three third places (St Moritz, Courchevel, Semmering) and one second place here in Swiss for the finals.
“It was the last race of the season and I really wanted to do something good. But it’s not that easy. The season has been tough and long. I lost a lot of energy in the very hard top section of the course and my batteries were definitely low to finish strong. I’ve got no regrets. I pushed until the end and I’m really pleased with this 2nd place to end my super season.”
At home, the Swiss racer Lara Gut has concluded her season with a podium, a third place in Giant Slalom after taking two times the 4th place in this discipline this season in Aspen and St-Moritz.
“It’s only my second podium in Giant Slalom, after the one 4 years ago in Semmering and I’m of course really happy. I’ve managed to ski the way I wanted today, even though I made a couple of mistakes, especially in the 2nd run. When I’m stable on my skis, I’m usually fast. It’s a shame the season is ending while I’m starting to make podiums”
