Candlelight Ski & Snowshoe Tour

Sunday, February 19

Tour the Elver Park park by the warm glow of candlelight. Bring your family and friends and enjoy a night of skiing and snowshoeing.

The event will be held on a one kilometer candlelit loop of man-made snow. We’ve been able to make artificial snow at Elver Park throughout the winter, thereby stockpiling snow with the forethought that natural snow will have melted. The artificial snow will ensure that the event can be held despite unseasonably warm temperatures.
