The race takes place at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 15 in the Kimberley Alpine Resort plaza. Racers will make their way up the skin track along the Boundary run all the way to the Kootenay Haus, before transitioning out of their skins and skiing back down to the plaza.

The event promises a friendly and fun atmosphere and encourages competitors to come dressed up as there will a prize awarded for the best costume.
