Red Bull Nordix

March 12-13, 2016

Red Bull Nordix is coming to Lake Louise!

The ultimate cross-country skiing competition is coming to Canada as Red Bull Nordix debuts at Lake Louise Ski Resort on March 12 & 13, 2016. As the curtain closes on the cross-country skiing season, the world’s elite will go head to head with local up and coming nordic athletes to compete in what could be best described as Skier-X with a challenging twist.

The competition is divided into two classes, male and female, and starts off with qualification runs on Saturday, March 12th based on lap time. The 64 fastest men and 10 fastest women will qualify to the finals to be held on Sunday, March 13th. In the Sunday finals, competitors are placed in heats of 4 based on their lap in the qualification round. Two competitors from each heat will move on until one male and one female remain and crowned the 2016 Red Bull Nordix Champions.

The event is open for anyone to register (age 16 and over), so grab some Cross Country Skis and head on down to the ski cross track that will be built specifically for this event. Jumps, burms, drops and an uphill component will definitely challenge even the strongest Nordic skiers. Cash & product prizing to be won! The official press release can be viewed here.

It is absolutely FREE for Spectators!! Spectators may walk up to the Fan Zone at the finish line where you can cheer on the athletes. No lift pass required.
