9th Annual Community Fun R***s

community race 2023

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 2023 will be held at the Fernie Golf Course. No trail pass required when you enter one of these events. Our goal to make it a fun event for young skiers as well as older ones. Thank you to all volunteers organizing this event.
