About Us

Enjoy a two-day celebration of cross country skiing and Nordic Legends which takes place the second Friday and Saturday in February every year. It is Western Canada’s Premier Nordic Ski Event and one of only three Birkebeiner Loppets in the world – Norway and the USA host the other two. Now in its 32nd year, the Birkie continues the tradition of honoring perseverance, courage and fortitude…as well as lots of Nordic Fun for the whole family!
