The 2017 Sigge's P'ayak takes place at Whistler Olympic Park, site of the 2010 Winter Olympic/Paralympic Games. It is designed to be fun and family friendly, with a loppet for adults and teens and the P'ayak Mini loppet for kids (aged 5-12). Loppet distances are 15, 30 and 50 km and about 5 km for the Mini. Note, the Ski Tournament and Ski Cross are not being offered this year. So that all club members (parents and kids) can take part, the Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club will not offer any ski sessions at Cypress on Saturday. We may be offering a special ski tournament session on Sunday at Cypress. Parents, please consider volunteering if you are not taking part in the loppet. Lots of help will be needed to make this event a success.
We need volunteers! No experience is necessary. Click here to register as a volunteer.
