Dave Murray Masters’ National Cup
The Dave Murray Masters’ National Cup was donated by Alpine Canada to promote top participation and performance at the Canadian Masters’ Alpine Championships.
Eligible Competitors: Must be on the Masters’ World Cup points list and race for the province in which they were registered.
- West —BC
- Central —Alberta and Prairies
- East —Ontario, Québec and Atlantic
Finishers in each age group will receive points for their team i.e. 10 points for 1st place, 9 points for 2nd, etc. There are 26 age groups (13 male & 13 female). Each team may only score one female and one male per age group up to a maximum of 20 racers—the ultimate score is 200 points per event. Points from all 3 or 4 races will be tallied and the team with the highest cumulative score will win.
The regional team with the best score in the last race event will be declared the overall winner.
The trophy was originally awarded to the top province. Two regional teams (east & west) were formed in 2006. The current three regions were defined in 2009 in an effort to find a fair regional balance, the results of which demonstrate this.
Champion of Champions
Awarded to the fastest age-adjusted male and female racers in all events at the Canadian Masters’ Alpine Championships. This award can only be won once every three years and comes with the prize of free* race entry fees for the subsequent Canadian Masters’ Alpine Championships.
Note: From 2021 onwards, only Canadian citizens or Canadian permanent residents can be awarded the Champion of Champions.
History: Nancy Greene suggested that the award be called “Champion of Champions”; the award was first started in 2004.
