Winter Olympic Gold Medalists Ashleigh McIvor and Maëlle Ricker team up with Tourism BC and challenge North Americans to compete against them online and in person. Ashleigh and Maëlle have launched some fun contests for winter enthusiasts! Chris Wheeler had the pleasure of filming these video clips with Ashleigh and Maëlle and lets just say these Olympians had a good time coming up with these challenges.

Video contest: How fast can you put on your ski or snowboard gear?
Photo contest: Strangest place to take your skis/snowboard?
Prizes for top entries include Contour HD camera and a Olympus Stylus camera. Check it out at

Tourism BC has also launched a cool interactive site at where visitors can enter a contest to win a trip with seven friends and spend five days at the BC winter resort of their choice. They will also be given the opportunity to train with Maëlle and Ashleigh and compete in their very own BC Ski Games! The combination of chilling in a fabulous BC resort, hitting powder with your friends, and training with Olympic Gold Medalists Asheligh McIvor and Maëlle Ricker is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
