First Ever Fernie Birkie

Super amazing day! Thanks everyone for coming out for our first Birkie! 13 racers total, 8 doing 50 km and 5 doing the first lap of 25 km. The participants skied on the trails of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre and the Fernie Alpine Resort including a brief rest on a chairlift of the resort. Check the costumes out in the photos. Thank you to our partners at Fernie Alpine Resort for giving our racers a lift on the Deer chair. Special thanks to Wild Wolves Design for very cool medals and Erika Sowchuk for our new Birkie logo.

Results can be found at HERE.

Start planning your costumes for next year, we will see you then!
