Abby Award Foundation

In memory of Abby Wunsch -- an avid young ski racer who's life was taken from us much too early...

Abby's Story

Abby started skiing when she was almost 3 years old. She loved her first day on snow and she quickly learned the sport and loved being on the ski hill...

About the Award

The Abby Award is a snowflake medallion which is presented to a U10 level ski racer in each participating club across Canada.

Abby Patches

We hope all who purchase a badge will remember Abby and will reflect on what it means to love the sport of skiing.

In Remembrance of Abby

Abby never won 1st, 2nd or 3rd, but she had fun. She showed up to the hill with a smile, did whatever the coaches asked of her, put in 110% and never said she didn’t want to go. The ski community has given us so much that we feel the best way to honour Abby is to give back by recognizing young athletes that have the same passion as Abby. 

Here's a tribute to Abby by her family and the ski community.

The Abby Award

The Abby Award is a snowflake medallion which is presented to a U10 level ski racer in each participating club across Canada. This award is for athletes who shows up in the morning with a smile on their face. They try their best and give 110%, do what the coach asks, never complain and cheer on their teammates. It is meant for athletes who are there because they want to have fun and they truly love the sport of skiing. 

Yearly we put together packages for all alpine clubs in Canada to award to one of their U10 athletes the Abby Award at the end of each season. The Coaches who work closely with all the children decide which athlete is the one who exhibits the characteristics above.

Presently there are 92 clubs participating from coast to coast across Canada. If your club would like to receive a award package to present to one of your deserving athletes, contact us.
