From the racer’s mouth, The Western Open has become a bit of an institution,” it’s not the easiest race to get to but it’s one of the most loved tracks on the BC Cup circuit!”
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and SE Racing have scheduled the Western Open for July 27th 2014. In the summer of 2009, KHMR was the host of the first Western Cup and set a staggering precedent for future circuit downhill races. This last summer saw the Western Open grow to over 250 racers with nothing but positive feedback from racers and family alike. The re-worked Pioneer Race Course provided challenges to experienced racers and thrilled spectators. Moving forward with the momentum of last year’s unique event, the 2014 race will embody similar course elements with the addition of further resort animation and secondary celebration events in the plaza along with host & emcee Brett Tippie.
