Broderick Thompson grew up in Whistler BC since day one, attending Myrtle Philip Elementary and Whistler secondary in which his dad was a long time teacher. Broderick grew up on the mountain, skiing all aspects of it from big mountain to park as well as in the gates. In the end deciding on a lifelong pursuit of speed. Joining the Whistler Mountain Ski Club at 11 and working his way through the ranks, from WMSC, to BC ski team. Now Broderick is a member of Canadas National Ski Team racing on the World Cup with the privilege and guts to be racing in places like Kitzbuhel and Bormio on any given weekend throughout the Winter. Broderick attributes some of his success to the multitude of sports Whistler offered him at a young age, as well as a community that felt like a family. Having athletes like Manny Osborne Paradis, Robbie Dixon and Mike Janyk to look up to, and the next generation of WMSC shredders enthusiastic to get better, there has been no end to the motivation that our small valley provides. Be on the look out for Broderick in the community and on the World Cup this season.
