We Ski EVERYWHERE! 

High Park Ski Club

HPSC race season kicks off with frisbee biathlon!

We picked up where we left off last season – with a fun game of Frisbee biathlon. Not familiar with it? Teams of two compete, with the first skier completing the 800m blue loop, followed by tossing the frisbee with their partner. Failure to catch the frisbee = penalty loop! Then teammate #2 did the same thing. It’s chaotic and fun.

Twenty-four participants braved the somewhat icy conditions to give it a shot. Congratulations to Charles & Tairan for winning the mixed division (skate/classic) and Denise & Andrew for winning the classic division. Full results are shown in the table on the right. Below is a link to Michael’s great pictures.
