Winter in the Wild shook off any hints of cabin fever as Elkford hosted a full schedule of activities over the weekend starting with a torchlight run and fireworks on Friday evening.

Families made the most of the warmer temperatures. Sledding down toboggan hill was fun for the whole family with softer landings. Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher joined the toboggan party for a barbeque and hot chocolate at the top of the hill.

The Elk Valley Minor hockey league bantam team played at the recreation centre arena.

Wapiti ski hill celebrated their fortieth birthday with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Wapiti Ski Club on Saturday morning.
