The Team Destination Ski Challenge is back for this season! The Destination Challenge is coming up starting February 5th! This year's challenge is kinder and gentler, only 4 weeks long. As in last years, solos are welcome!
The 2024 Challenge: Our two journeys this year are in Italy. Teams travel from Milan to Val di Fiemme (site of the 2026 Olympic Nordic Skiing events) and back, a total of 824 kms. Solos travel from Venice to Val di Fiemme (185 km). Form teams of 5 or ski solo and accumulate kilometers while adding bonus kilometers by taking part in weekly challenges. Log onto the Sun Peaks Nordic Facebook Page for information each week and to see how you stack up against the other teams or solos. Note that for this year, once you reach your team or solo distance, your challenge is complete and kilometers will no longer be counted or published. Again this year: Teams and solos can add bonus kilometers by taking part in weekly challenges (see below).
Dates: Mon. Feb 5, 2024 - Sun. March 3, 2024 (4 weeks)
Teams can be of any size up to a maximum of 5.
Solos can enter and compete against other solo entrants.
Every team needs a name and a leader. Team leader collects their team km for the week on Sundays.
Team leaders report team kilometres and results of bonus challenges to Naomi each Sunday - email to email@example.com with your team name and total team kms for the week.
Every team member has to be a member of the Sun Peaks Nordic Club - JOIN HERE
No mileage for going up the chair but you can ski down Holy Cow as many times as you want.
No fat bikes, snowshoes, hiking or downhill skis - you must be on skinny skis for it to count
Record your kilometres to one decimal point
Just like last year, each week of the Challenge has a different way to collect bonus kilometres!
HOW TO ENTER: Email Naomi at firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name and team members (or just your name if you're doing Individual). Include an email address for team leader. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
