Sunday, February 15 (postponed from February 8) will mark the 9th edition of the ConocoPhillips Winter Carnival, a fun hour-and-a-half filled with ski games and a scavenger hunt.
The event will feature various Olympic-themed games – all to be held on skis. Past favorites have included freestyle skiing, tennis ball biathlon, daul-slalom, hockey, and the short-track speed skiing relay.
Skiers will take part in four of six event stations before heading on a scavenger hunt and concluding the afternoon with a snack in the Birch Hill XC Ski Center.
The afternoon will be held in conjunction with the regular Junior Nordics session that Sunday, although it will extend an extra half hour (from 2 to 3:30 PM) to fit in all the fun! Skiers in a different Junior Nordics session are welcome to come on Sunday as well that week.
Interior skiers age 4 to 13 that are not currently signed-up for Junior Nordics are welcome to join as well (we do ask parents of these skiers arrive at 1:45 to fill out a waiver for the event in the Birch Hill Cross Country Ski Center, and to find where to send their skiers for the start of the event).
