Avast ye Hearties Pirate Loppet ahead!

Avast ye Hearties Pirate Loppet ahead!

The annual Larch Hills Pirate Loppet is set to take place on February 3 starting at 10:30 a.m. This long-running and unique event, thanks to tremendous volunteer and community support, is not a race but rather a participation event designed to encourage youngsters to learn how to cross country ski.

Participants are invited to dress like a pirate, have a fun ski, refreshments, and maybe even win some prizes! The race kicks off with a blasting cannon and volunteers also get into the spirit and don their best pirate gear!

Students register with their school to take part in the event.

The school district would like to thank the many community sponsors and in particular the Larch Hills Nordic Society for all their work to create this opportunity for our students.

Thank you community sponsors and supporters: Toliver Advertising and Design, Askew’s Foods, Tim Hortons, Hub Barton Insurance, Skookum Cycle and Sport, Columbia Shuswap Regional District, Stella Jones, Argo Road Maintenance, LA Sign, Salmon Arm Ready Mix, H2O4U, Boston Pizza
