MWC 2016 – Vuokatti, Finland
Vuokatti, Finland will host the 2016 MWC from February 4-13. Interest is very high to date with quite a few skiers already committed. Our National Director, Bruce LeGrow, has a number of rooms booked for Canadians at the Vuokatti Sport Hotel where the rate per person for a double room at half board is 73.50 euros.
If there is a skier who wants to share a room, Rick Larush, who is from Alberta and competed in the Canadians in Huntsville and Kamloops, is looking for a person to share his room at the Vuokatti Sport Hotel. If you are interested, please contact Rick at rlarush@telusplanet.net
