Prince George Ski Club hosts U12 “Ski the North Festival” at Purden Ski Village

On the weekend of February 19 & 20, 2022, the Prince George Ski Club welcomed 108 U6, U8, U10 and U12 racers from North Zone clubs, including Lightning Creek Ski Club, Powder King Ski Club and Smithers Ski and Snowboard Club. In the words of the organizers, it was “snowy, chilly and fun”, a “festival” in every sense of the word! On Saturday the racers tackled a one-run stubby slalom course and enjoyed two runs in the speed trap. Sunday’s busy schedule offered two runs down a Kombi track and two super-fun jumps!

“We pulled off two events per day and there were so many smiling eyes and laughs to share among friends. Thank you to Sporting Life and all the volunteers who made this weekend a big success!”

Amber Bertucci, PG Ski Club
