Fundy Loppet - February 20th

On Sunday February 20th the Chignecto Ski Club is hosting the Fundy Loppet at Fundy National Park. If you like groomed trails, Fundy National Park is a great place to cross country ski with 25 km of trails for both classic and skate skiing. 

For you information and to register for the Loppet, check out their website www.skichignecto.ca 

The Chignecto Ski Club promotes cross country skiing in the Park and operates a Jackrabbit Skiing Program for youth. In addition to the winter activities they were the force behind the H20 Adventure Triathlon last September.  

The Fundy (Caledonia) Highlands that flank the inner Bay of Fundy from St. Martins to Hillsborough, create a unique snow effect. Moist air coming off the Bay, cools as it's pushed into the higher elevations and turns to snow. The snow starts to get deep as soon as you leave the coast climbing into the park and creates a snowbelt in the middle and northern edges of the Highlands. This area has significantly longer snow season than the valleys of southern New Brunswick.
