Get your gear waxed up because the Fernie Nordic Society is bringing back its full moon ski on Friday, Jan. 6.
This event is one of many that used to be hosted during the winter season but since the start of COVID full moon ski and others have had to be cancelled.
President of the nordic society Matthieu Corriveau said about 20 people usually attend the event but this year he is hoping for more.
“We’re excited to do this again and hope people come out and enjoy it. There are no reservations, just come out, bring some snacks and enjoy a full day of skiing. Sometimes it gets too dark so it’s strongly recommended that people bring a headlamp.”
The event will take place at 7 p.m. around the Elk Valley Nordic Centre next to Lizard Creek.
The warming up will be open from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., for everyone to relax and enjoy their food.
Open to the public of all ages, but Corriveau did emphasize that adults are more welcome than children. The event is free for Nordic Society members and a day ticket is required for non-members.
