The Nordic Toonie races return Jan 19!

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.
