It's become the highlight of the Nordic season! On March 16 and 17, 2019, the Sun Peaks Nordic Festival returned for the biggest year yet. Plenty of Nordic fans both young and old made the trip to Sun Peaks to challenge themselves and have fun on our beautiful network of cross country trails under glorious sunny skies.
The Teck Sun Peaks Nordic Sprint Challenge kicked things off on Saturday night with a fun short course race under lights. The following day skiers tackled course lengths of 2 km, 5 km, 15 km, or 30 km during the Sun Peaks Loppet.
Here's a look back at a fantastic weekend of Nordic racing and camaraderie:
Congratulations to all of the skiers who took part and we'll see you again next year!
