What Students Say

Whether I am in Vancouver, Calgary or even Seattle, I seem to hear about or meet a Selkirk alumnus. Students come from all over the world to attend Selkirk College and have had positive learning/life experiences.   We came from the west and the east-all the way across the country.  My academic journey started at Selkirk; it planted a lot of seeds. It was the stepping stone to my success.

It’s more of a fun environment, there’s already a junior free riding circuit in southern B.C. that includes Red Mountain and Fernie, and local kids who follow skiing are likely already aware of freeriding’s growing popularity.   It’s the kind of stuff you see in the magazines and the movies and all their favourite action heroes for skiing are participating in these kind of events.  New cat and heli programs, meanwhile, will introduce skiers to different styles of terrain and provide opportunities to ski those areas with instructors.  Also both new programs are about making the exciting more accessible to the average skier.
