Nordic Ski Championships & SnowFest coming to Huntsville

From February 19 – 22, Huntsville is turning into a winter paradise! Start out by watching the competition unfold at the Nordic Ski Provincial Championships, taking place at both Arrowhead Provincial Park and Downtown Huntsville from February 19 – 21. Afterwards, SnowFest will be taking place on February 21 and 22 with a free festival full of outdoor winter activities on a snow-covered Main Street in Downtown Huntsville.

 

Watch student-athletes compete at the Nordic Ski Provincial Championships

February 18, 2020: *Update*  Due to the teacher strike, we received news from the OSSTF that they have cancelled the second day of the OFSAA event on Friday February 21st. In moving the event forward, athletes will still be arriving on Wednesday February 19 to complete course inspection at Arrowhead followed by the distance races on Thursday February 20th. There will be no awards banquet at Deerhurst on Thursday evening. Sprint relays will not be happening downtown. There will not be a snow groomers workshop prior to the event. SnowFest is STILL ON February 22.

The fun in Huntsville kicks off on February 19 as student-athletes compete at the OFSAA Nordic Ski Provincial Championships! The state of the art trails at Arrowhead Provincial Park will be hosting the event with 700 student-athletes and 100 coaches from across the province.

  • February 19: Teams arriving at Arrowhead Provincial Park to complete a course inspection of the distance event courses
  • February 20:  Athletes return to Arrowhead Provincial Park to compete in the long-distance events, using the 42 kilometres of pristine trails
  • February 21: Athletes head to downtown Huntsville for the four-person team sprint races. The skiing will be freestyle on an 850-meter course

The head Olympic Groomer for the trails at PyeongChang Olympic Games and Vancouver Olympics will be in Huntsville showcasing the latest technology from Prinoth Snowgroomer.  The Prinoth is the same machine that will be travelling to downtown Minneapolis for next month’s World Cup, making the trails perfect for the competition that is about to unfold.

 

The Huntsville SnowFest is here!


February 18, 2020: *Update* Due to the teacher strike, SnowFest has been changed to February 22 (instead of February 21 and 22).

Watch Huntsville be transformed from a quaint and charming town into an epic snow-covered street for winter activities. On February 21 and 22 try skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, and skating on Main Street at this free and family-friendly event. After cheering on the Nordic Ski Teams at the provincials on February 21, grab your winter gear and head to the fun from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM. Main Street will be a back-lit winter wonderland where you can play all night long or break up the fun with unique shopping and dining opportunities. The next morning, on Saturday February 22, SnowFest starts back up with a full day of winter activities.
