The Flin Flon Ski Club is holding their 45th annual Val and Ivor Hedman Centaloppet Sunday afternoon. The Club’s Dave Price says it’s a community event for all ages and they gather on the Beaver Pond outside the Chalet for the start at 2 o’clock on Sunday and everybody is welcome. He says there’s no charge, prizes for all sorts of amazing categories like the best dressed, the fastest and the slowest, the biggest family that sort of thing, so it’s a big fun event and once a year they like to have a whole lot of people on the trail at once.
Price adds they’ve had skiers taking part ranging in age from a two year old riding on her father’s back to those in their 70’s and every skier has a chance to win the Centaloppet Cup. Registration takes place at the Ski Chalet basement between 1 and 1:30 with the event starting at 2.
