Teck Northern Cup in Vanderhoof

The sun was shining as skier of all ages skied the trails at the weekend ski races

The Teck Northern Cup took place in Vanderhoof on Saturday, a fun-filled ski race for all ages.

The sky was blue with enjoyable crisp air and people came from all around Nechako Lakes to participate in the races.

First the young group went followed by older kids and then adults. Races from .75 kilometers to 10 km had skiers zipping through the trails at the Nechako Valley Sporting Association.

The sound of a cow bell rang as skiers slid through the finish line.

Those who choose to ski the entire 10km showed great strength at the end approaching the final hill with arms flapping and legs working hard to make it to the finish. Everyone had a smile the entire time.
