Ski by torchlight on New Year’s Eve

The Candlelight Ski takes place between 7 - 10 pm on Wednesday, December 31 at the Kimberley Nordic Centre.

For the last six years, the Kimberley Nordic Racers has been organizing a New Year’s Eve Torchlight Ski Event at the Kimberley Nordic Trails.   This event has grown every year, and has become a tradition for  family and friends to gather as they ski the beautiful trails of the Kimberley Nordic Centre with 3 kms lit with torches and candles.  Last year over 500 people attended the event and it certainly proved to be a crowd pleaser.  Skiers enjoyed the amenities that the lodge has to offer by enjoying snacks and hot beverages after their ski.  As well the Nordic Trails offer a fantastic view of the firework display that takes place at the Ski Hill.

This year’s Candlelight Ski is being sponsored by five local businesses.  Corporate sponsors include Kimberley Tourism, Kimberley Logging Company, Kootenay Savings, Kootenay Mountain Works and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. The Nordic Racers wish to thank these sponsors for their support.  Their support keeps this event affordable for our Community and allows entrance by voluntary donations.

The Candlelight Ski takes place between 7:00- 10:00 pm on Wednesday, December 31 at the Kimberley Nordic Centre.  All ages are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Admission is by donation with proceeds supporting the Kimberley Nordic Racers.  The Nordic racers are a group of teenaged skiers that train all year long, and compete in regional, provincial and national races.

If you have not experienced the New Year’s Eve Candlelight Ski be sure to take in this memorable community event this year.  For more information please contact Kim Miller at 09coreykim@telus.net or Frank Ackermann at frankackermann@me.com.
