Fernie Nordic Society invites you to join them for a fun and friendly race and weekend for all ages.

Come to ski, come to race, or come to cheer! Compete against your friends and enjoy the great trails. There are several 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 and a passenger! The keyword here is FUN, so wear a funny hat or costume if you dare!

Open to members and non-members alike. No trail pass required when you enter one of these events.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16: RACING ROCKS!

11:30 am Start
Parents feel free to participate with your kids!
There is a scavenger hunt for the little ones and a Barkley Marathon style race for the bigger kids!

At 11:30 all racers gather to pull their page number out of the book. Once everyone has their page number, there will be a mass start to 5 different stations along Jackrabbit loop and Cedar loop. At each station, the racer will need to rip out the page from the book that matches their number and stuff it in their pocket! Hot dog BBQ afterward by donation.
