Ski Mountaineering Races at Hollyburn
- Try a SkiMo Race Today!
We are running a series of fun Ski Mountaineering races at Cypress Mountain Nordic Area (Hollyburn) from January 6 to March 9. They are fun races so no prizes for winning, only personal glory, but there will be some draw prizes.
The races start at 7:00 PM at the Hollyburn Lodge and take between 40 minutes and an hour. The courses will use the upper unlit trails so you will need a bright headlight along with standard SkiMo gear (helmet, avalanche beacon, probe, shovel and backpack).
Registration starts at 6:00 PM in the Lodge.
For those unfamiliar with SkiMo, you use AT, Telemark or Splitboard gear (metal edges) and challenge a course composed of skin or bootpack ascents and skinless descents. The transition zones are exciting as athletes do their acrobatic removal of skins without taking skis off (not a requirement!)
You can learn more at the SkimoCanada.org website.
You need to purchase a Nordic trail ticket at the ticket window in the Nordic base area, then skin up to the lodge to get your race bib.
You can pre-register for each race at Webscorer.com ($5) or register at the Lodge ($8). If you buy the Nordic trail ticket online there is a small savings.
