Many winters ago, a young trapper packed his supplies into a toboggan, and hitched it to the back of his new Elan. His was one of the first snowmachines in town. Although he missed his dogs, he was looking forward to trying this new machine. He left early one brittle cold morning, heading north from Yellowknife to his trapline. Almost at his camp, and 50 km out of town, the deep snow and deep cold got the better of the machine. Without his dogs, he had only one option. He strapped on his snowshoes, and started following his own trail back to town. Ten hours later, he staggered into Yellowknife. Cold. Tired. Hungry. Frostbitten.
What makes us different? We embrace winter! And we would like to help you make the most of this winter with the Frostbite 50, coming up on 19 March.The Frostbite 50 is a 50 km, continuous foot or classic ski event on ungroomed trails. Participate solo or as a team of up to five participants. There are four road-accessible checkpoints, and participants are welcome to have support along the way. This is an event, not a race, and there are no prizes for first place. We want winter lovers of all abilities to join us, and for everyone to have fun and finish safely. Register at zone4.ca (search for Frostbite).
