Snow Valley Nordic Ski Club
The Snow Valley Nordic Ski Club held their Annual Chocolate Marathon on Saturday, Feb. 25 with a blue sky above and fresh powder under foot.
81 skiers took to the trails determined to push themselves to the limit – or not. Distances of 1 km to 40 were available to choose from and 16 people chose the 30 or 40 km distances. They got the really big chocolate bars!
The 5 km distance was the most popular with 20+ skiers (mostly youngsters) challenging themselves to complete it quickly or just find the way!
We were delighted to welcome 6 skiers from Smithers, here to compete in the long distances of the Snow Valley edition of the Spirit of the North Series.
