4th Annual Fernie Winter Fest
The Fernie Nordic Society is holding its Annual Winter Fest at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre on a Sunday by mid-season. Their sixth edition of this event in January 2017 was a success. Everyone is welcome, club members and non-members alike, to participate in this popular event. We want to make it a fun event for young skiers as well as older ones. Our volunteers are organizing the event and the participation fees are kept low $5 (kids) and $10 (adults) for FNS members and $15 for non-members .
It is really a community event that includes our fun annual race. 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!
The Fernie Winter Fest event will be held on Sunday Febuary 18, 2017 at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre near the Mt Fernie Provincial Park. Registration for the event is done online only through the Webscorer.com website. The race fee is due on the morning of the race (cash only) at pickup of the number plate between 9:30 am and 10:30 am.
