Looking for a challenge? This is a the one, a long one but very casual – unless you don’t want it to be casual, and then feel free to ski like mad! Excellent prizes, ride(s) on the Deer chair, a lot of yummy food and drinks. Prizes will be awarded for best Viking costume and then as door prizes! You have the option to do either the full 50 km yourself (2 loops to the ski hill trails and back) or you can choose to do a single loop of 25 km. You can classic or skate ski as you wish … let’s go for No Rules!

This year the event took place on Sunday morning March 15, 2020 at 10:30 at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre located next to the Mt Fernie Provincial Park. The start time is set for 10:30 am. Wishing lots of fun to all!

Thank you to Fernie Alpine Resort for supporting this amazing event!
