    Background

    Background to National Ski Team:
    Phil Widmer proved he’s a young talent to be reckoned with during a highly successful Olympic season in 2006. Along with making his Olympic debut, he won a gold medal in the sprint discipline at the National Championships and qualified fourth in the sprint event in his first ever World Cup race on home snow in Vernon, B.C. Making his return to the National Ski Team in 2013-14, Phil continues to develop each day in pursuit of finding his way back to the start line of the Olympic Games.

    Phil grew up in Banff, Alta with skis on his feet. At the age of 12 he traded in his alpine boards for the nordic sticks and hasn’t looked back since. In the springtime he likes to combine both and go ski touring, the best of both worlds. Phil has been training for Nordic ski racing for that past 12 years. He has Olympic dreams and world-class aspirations and is thankful for the opportunities given to him. He is excited to get after it! Ski to live.
