17th Annual HUB International Nancy Greene Festival - Hosted by Sun Peaks Alpine Club at Sun Peaks Resort, Friday March 22nd & Saturday March 23rd, 2019

Sun Peaks Racers look forward to welcoming special guests and Olympians Ken Read and Nancy Greene to the 17th Annual Hub International NGSL Festival!

With the Sun Peaks Nancy Greene Festival just a month away volunteers have been working hard to make this year extra special for the athletes and their families. Skiers from across the province will have a chance to participate in two fun-filled days of skills events, ski racing and modified ski cross.

There are some exciting additions to this year’s Festival. New this year...Speed Skiing Canada and Sun Peaks Speed Skiing have sponsored the Speed Trap Event. For many kids this is the favourite event of the weekend, when they have an opportunity to see how fast they can go in a fun and safe environment. The speed event “Break the Speed Limit” will be run by Sun Peaks Speed Skiing Club and there will be a prize for the boy and girl that “Break the Speed Limit” this year.

Also very exciting is the announcement that Crazy Canuck Ken Read will be joining us as a special guest speaker! Ken will join Nancy Greene at the Friday apres ski party and awards presentation in the village, and will speak to the athletes, parents and coaches in what is sure to be an inspiring and uplifting talk. 

Sun Peaks Racers would like to remind ski clubs to register their teams early, before the March 4th deadline.  Due to the popularity of this event registration space is limited and no late entries will be accepted.
