The Flin Flon Ski Club is holding their 43rd annual Val and Ivor Hedman Centaloppet Sunday afternoon. The Club’s Dave Price says it’s a community event for all ages and is just a short easy course that they ski. He says everybody gets together on the beaver pond just below the Chalet at 2 o’clock and there are lots of prizes to win and everyone is welcome with prizes for the largest family, happy face and that sort of thing so it’s just a fun event.
Price adds they’ve had skiers taking part ranging in age from six to those in their 70’s and every skier has a chance to win the Centaloppet Cup. He says there’s no entry fee but they would like you to register at the Chalet basement between 1 and 1:30 with the event starting at 2. He says the trails are in fantastic shape and with the nice weather they would like to break records for participation this time.
