Over one hundred people enjoyed the sun and the sport of cross country skiing during the Sunset Ridge Cross Country Ski Club’s family fun event.

With many sets of ski’s available to borrow and instructors on hand, those who were new to the sport had the opportunity to learn what it’s all about, while others hit the trails soaking in the beautiful weather and views.

“It was such a great event and we had so much positive feedback. I think the best comment we received was that we haven’t seen kids or families have so much fun at the hill since the 1980’s,” said Shelly Hume, Sunset Ridge Ski Club Director. “We were really fortunate to be able to borrow and rent so many ski’s and heard from a lot of people that they really had fun and would be interested in a program similar to Fernie’s here in Sparwood. We are hopeful moving forward that we will be able to have ski’s for kids to rent yearly and to have some locally trained instructors. The flat area at the hill worked perfectly for all the children to learn and see that this type of program could be a really positive thing for our community. All in all, we were really happy with the attendance and appreciate all of the support we received to make this event a huge success.”
