Coming up at the Larch Hills cross-country ski area on Sunday, Dec. 15 is the 18th Annual Santa Cruise, a fun event with free technique – either skate or classic. There’s a route of approximately 10-kilometres for people 18 and over, 5-km for ages 14 to 17, 3-km for 10 to 13, 2-km for seven to nine, and a 1-km route for six and under. Parents are asked to ski with younger children.
Registration is from 10 to 10:55, with an 11 a.m. start. Entry fee is a cash or cheque donation to the food banks, or contribute an item for the Nordics’ popular Christmas shopping auction and/or bring food to share for lunch.
If you pay by cheque to Salvation Army Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank or Armstrong Food Bank, you will receive an income tax receipt.
