UPDATE: This outdoor event has been modified to the Great Fernie Pumpkin Challenge
for this fall 2021 due to COVID restrictions. Visit our page to get started!
This popular event is open to children and it is appropriate to kids up to 9 year old. Only a small entry fee for each pumpkin hunter. Participants are not required to be a club member. The Great Pumpkin Hunt is usually held each year on the third Saturday in October at the Warming Hut of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. Come and have a look at the trails before the snow falls! Full details will be announced early in the Fall. Tickets are sold in advance of the event.
The hunt is followed by marshmallows by the fire pits as well as hot chocolate, coffee and hot dogs for the participants – by donation. There is also a photo booth – also by donation – which proves to be very popular with the pumpkin hunters. The event is one of the club fundraiser events.
