2013, Alain Masson (Cross-Country Skiing)


Masson has provided unparalleled leadership in developing cross-country skiing in the Yukon. His dedication to coaching athletes is manifested in the significant number of high calibre national and international skiers who call Yukon home. Following a distinguished career as an athlete that included three Olympic appearances as a skier and a cyclist, Alain joined Cross Country Yukon as head coach and Sport Coordinator in 1996. One of his proudest accomplishments was coaching an unprecedented five of our Yukon athletes to spots on the sixteen-member Team Canada at the 2012 World Junior & U23 Championships.
