Snowshoe invasion to return to Vernon
VERNON — The Viking Snowshoe Invasion is coming back to the mountain on Jan. 26, 2019.
Choose a 5k tromp or one mile option and challenge the best of your winter skills!
Runners, walkers or those trying it for the first time are all welcome.
Ride the cab up to the top of the mountain and then choose to tromp out a 5k or master a one mile downhill dash. Either event is sure to keep you warm on even the chilliest of days.
Spectators can gather by the outdoor fireplaces and cheer their Viking on as they make their way down the mountain. Plenty of hot cocoa will be on hand for everyone. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. at the Biergarten, the lift will start bringing participants up to the top of the mountain at 9:00 am and the race kicks off at 10 a.m.
