A special end of season event at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre.

Looking for a challenge? This is a the one, a long one but very casual – unless you don’t want it to be casual, and then feel free to ski like mad! Excellent prizes, ride(s) on the Deer chair, a lot of yummy food and drinks. Prizes will be awarded for best Viking costume and then as door prizes! You have the option to do either the full 50 km yourself (2 loops to the ski hill trails and back) or you can choose to do a single loop of 25 km. You can classic or skate ski as you wish … let’s go for No Rules!

This year the event takes place on Saturday morning March 14, 2020 at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre located next to the Mt Fernie Provincial Park. The start time is set for 9:30 am. Wishing lots of fun to all!
