Yuk Yuk-ing it up for Wapiti Ski Hill

Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club will be making a stop at the Elkford Community Conference Centre on October 27.

Jasen Fredricksen will headline Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club in Elkford on October 27.

Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club is coming to Elkford. The stand up comedy tour will be making a stop at the Elkford Community Conference Centre on October 27, as part of a fundraiser for Wapiti Ski Hill.

Featuring Canadian comedians, Jasen Fredricksen and Derek Sweet, the show will get started at 9 p.m., and will be followed by a dance. It’s all for the Wapiti Ski Club, and 100 per cent of the proceeds will go towards the volunteer based ski hill.

Volunteer Coordinator for Wapiti Ski Club, Andrea Gagnon, said the event is not only a fundraiser, but a way to find a few more volunteers for the upcoming ski season. “We’re a volunteer based hill so we do our best to try and get as many people as we can so there’s less work and more fun for everybody.”

“We’re the only place in the valley that has night skiing, throughout the week we actually only offer night skiing. I thought it would work really well with people in Fernie who might want to come up and ski a little more in the evening,” Gagnon explained. “We get just as much snow as Fernie does. It’s a small hill, but it’s a great little community.”

In addition to offering night skiing on weekdays, Wapiti Ski HIll is also open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Gagnon is currently on the hunt for volunteer ski patrollers and trail crew, as well as people willing to work in the concession, office, rental shop, and ski school. Anyone interested in volunteering at the Wapiti Ski Hill can contact Andrea at andreagonnelly@hotmail.com, or 250-865-4629.

Tickets for the Yuk Yuk’s comedy performance and fundraiser can be purchased at Cross Circuit in Elkford, or by calling 250-854-2344.
