The Whistler Olympic Park hosted the first ever Skate X Shoot race event during 2012. This event was presented by the Whistler Longboard Festival as the starting event for the 2012 weekend. The location was the beautiful Callaghan Valley track which was blessed with sunny skies on July 12, 2012. The event combined a 10 km paved track and the biathlon range to produce an exciting competition. A wide variety of competitors entered the event and are also expected to compete on the weekend.
