How do I participate in the Raging Elk Silk Trail Slide event?

  1. REGISTER for the event
    • Registration is $15 (including tax) – https://skircr.com/product/raging-elk-silk-trail-slide-2024/
      • RCR Event Release Agreements are required to be completed during the registration process.
        • Competitors 16 years and older must complete one waiver, the Event Release Agreement – the competitor can do the Event Release Agreement themselves.
        • Competitors 15 years of age and younger need to have their parents or legal guardians complete two waivers – the Event Release Agreement and the Parental Consent Agreement. So, your parents or legal guardian must register you.
        • Once the agreement is complete, it will auto-fill the Agreement IDs into the registration form.
  1. JOIN the Fernie Alpine Resort club on Strava.
  2. COMPLETE one (or more) of the event segments
    • Track your results and post them on Strava.
    • If you don’t have Strava, you can track your results on any other GPS program/app.
  3.  COLLECT your finisher medal and enter the prize draws
    • Once you have completed your segment, go into Guest Services located in the main plaza.
    • Show your registration confirmation email & your Strava results to receive your finisher medal – everyone who finishes receives the medal!
    • When you pick up your medal, you will get a draw prize form to fill out, which will enter you into our prize draws.

How to Use Strava for the Event:

  • Join the Fernie Alpine Resort Strava club (link above)
  • To find the routes for the Silk Trail Slide, look for the ‘Events’ on the Fernie Alpine Resort club page on Strava.
  • Each Route Length is set as a different event – click on the event with the route length you want to complete
  • Once in the event, if you click on ‘view the route’ from the event, you have an option on the bottom left of the screen to “use route.” This will automatically take you to the recording feature with the route marked out, making it easy to follow the correct route.
  • Make sure you start and end your Strava at the start of the route – end of Double Creek, the start of Silk Trails (look for the sign). Once complete, please add to your activity comments/description if you were doing the route on Classic or Skate skis.

Strava leaderboards

We will be using the Strava Segments listed on each Strava event as our leaderboards. In your activity comments, make sure to include whether you were Skate Skiing or Classic Cross Country.

Don’t have Stava? You can still participate. The routes are posted below, and you can export a gpx or tcx file for use in other programs or devices. Track your route on your own device and then simply show proof that you have completed the route to Guest Services (show device, screenshot of the activity etc.) to collect your medal and be entered into the prize draw.

Race routes:

4km route = Manchuria -> Silk Trail

9km route = Manchuria -> Scandia -> Silk Trail

You can find our Trail Map here: https://skifernie.com/img/2018-19-FAR-Winter-Multi-Use-Trail-Maps-SFS-Dec-2018.pdf

All routes start at the beginning of the wide-open intersection where the Manchuria/Silk Trail starts and the Double Creek trail ends. Keep an eye out for the event signage.

How do you win prizes?

We will have prizes for 1st place in each category & draw prizes for everyone who registers and completes a distance.

Once the event is complete, winners will be selected by random draw.   The emphasis of the event is to get out, get active, and have fun, so the majority of the prizes will be given away via this random prize draw.

What if I want to do more than one distance?

Participants can do more than one distance. You don’t have to register again if you want to do more than one distance (please note you will only get one finisher medal, though). But for every distance you complete, you get entered into the prize draw. For example – you want to complete both the 4km and 9km distances. You need to register once and can do both distances. After completing your first distance, you can get your finisher medal and draw prize entry. For the second distance, you can come into Guest Services and get a second entry into the draw prize pool (but not a second medal). You can do the distances over different days (you don’t have to do the event all on one day), which is why we have a long competition window. Since the point of the event is to get out and enjoy our nordic trails, we encourage you to do more than one distance over the time frame.
