The Whistler Nordics host the Nordic Toonie Races on Thursday nights at Lost Lake in Whistler during the winter ski season. Each night comprises a fun ‘race’ lit by headlamp then a social afterwards. The races are open to everyone, young and old, and of all abilities. While there are a few racers who like to compete there are many recreational skiers and families who are out for a fun night, to exercise, to get to know the local ski trails, and socialize with other skiers. Each race costs $2 (Toonie) and every participant must be a Whistler Nordics member, if you’d like to ‘try before you buy’ we offer a one-off ‘Try a Toonie’ for $5 for non-members (not available for the last race of the season). Sign up online as a member to save time at registration.
