Great people and great weather made Tweedsmuir Ski Club’s 27th Annual Cross Country Ski Race a successful day. We had record numbers with a total of 68 participants ranging in age from approximately 70 years old to a few months old! It was a fun race this year, especially for the little kids who had the chance to ‘dig for treasures’ along the way. We had a large showing of youth, with students from both SAMS Outdoor Ed Class and Acswalcta School entering the race.

David Enderud was the overall race winner, skiing 24km in 2:02:50 and Kerry Boileau finished first in the female 24km division. Rick and Donna Ratcliff and Vera Robson also skied the entire 24km. The title of fastest under-16 youth to ski 14km went to Aaron Schieck, with Elijah Mecham coming in a close second and skiing a total of 21km. Other honorable mentions include Kai Gunderson, who was the youngest skier to ski the 14km route.

Thanks to Bill Ark for helping time the skiers, as well as the individuals who help pack and mark the track in the blizzard the day before the race! And a special thanks to Lyle Enderud and Duane Pederson for their dedication to grooming the trails.

The race ended with a great chili and hotdog potluck lunch and prizes and mugs were given to the fastest skiers. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the event, hopefully we’ll see even more people next year for the 28th Annual Race!

The Tweedsmuir Ski Club is also hosting a Grand Opening BBQ/Party in celebration of the newly rebuilt overnight Cabin. The event will take place April 7 at 11am at the overnight cabin in Tweedsmuir Park. It’s about a 15 minute walk/ski/snowshoe in and everyone is invited to come join in the winter fun and BBQ. We hope to have ice fishing and sledding, as well as the ski hill and rope tow running. See you there!
