Alcan Husky Nancy Greene Snow Star Festival

by Sarah26. March 2012 21:06

Around 550 kids in the Nancy Greene Ski League and their families descended on Sun Peaks Resort for the Alcan Husky Nancy Greene Snow Star Festival; a fun filled two day competition of racing, jumping and other skill testing events in-between.

'Speed Racer'

Into its 10th year, this festival is the biggest of its kind in Canada and families traveled from all over the country to bring their kids to this fantastic two day event! With over $8,000 worth of prizes up for grab the kids were showing off their talent and proving that they're tomorrow's most promising skiers.

Full concentration.

Racers were separated into two classes E1 for kids aged 5 – 7 and E2 for kids 8 – 12 years old. Each competitor got to have a go at each race and event. Racers go two runs down the courses and times were combined together to get the best and most even time score. Added this year was the Night Rock'n Roll Dual for K1 athletes (ages 10 – 12). With disco lights and a DJ it offered something different from the normal day races and was a huge hit with everyone that attended.

All smiles!

We look forward to everyone returning next year for the 11th year and a huge thank you to the sponsors, organizers and all the volunteers that gave up their time to help make this event another success!
