Join the Fernie Nordic Society for a day of fun 'races', and more!

Come to ski, come to race, or come to cheer! Compete against your friends and enjoy the great trails. This is an annual community event that is really a fun race open to everyone. Participation is open to all skiers, club members or non-members alike, all ages and abilities.

As in previous years, there are several popular categories to choose from, short ones for the young skiers and longer distances for the older kids and adults and even a ‘team’ category with an adult pulling a chariot with a passenger. The keyword here is FUN, so wear a funny hat or costume if you dare!

The event in 2024 will be held at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre.  All ages and abilities welcome! A volunteer-run event.


Register on the day at Elk Valley Nordic Centre warming hut from 10am. 

Free admission for members and under 18's. $15 Day pass required for non-members, but no cost to enter races. Donations to the Fernie Nordic Centre appreciated.
