Coast Outdoors P’ayakentsut (no sessions Cypress)
The Coast Outdoors P’ayakentsut, or Payak for short, is truly an event for all ages and all levels of cross country skiers. Traversing Olympic legacy trails as well as old growth forests, the loppet offers participants a chance to train, to meet new friends, to enjoy the rugged wild beauty of the Callaghan Valley, and to enjoy a what is truly a sport for life – cross country skiing.
The 2019 Payak takes place at Whistler Olympic Park, the 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 Payak Mini loppet for kids (aged 5-12). Loppet distances are 15, 30 and 50 km and 5 km for the Mini. 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.
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. Click here to volunteer.
