Races

Our Winter Races start January 9th, 2018 at Cypress Nordic Ski Area! The races are designed around a loop course, and there are distance options, as well as for skate or classic. ALL LEVELS WELCOME!

Each race starts at 7pm outside the Hollyburn Lodge - you must register beforehand and complete a waiver if you have not done so previously.

After each race we head to Hollyburn Lodge for dinner specials and prize giving, and then finish the season with a dinner and grand prize draw.

Predict your Lap Time

The traditional start to the winter race season is the Predict Your Lap race, where the winner is the person who guesses how long it will take them to do a loop of the race course, not who's fastest!

A super fun way to start the year - make sure you arrive early as you will have to complete a waiver for the year before the start of the race.
