Bittersweet Family Ski Day & Poker Derby

Feb 19, 2023

The poker derby will run from 12 noon to 3pm.

Those wishing to participate can purchase their hand(s) at the Nordic Centre and then ski approximately 8 kilometers on some of our easier trails to three predetermined locations and draw their 2nd, 3rd and 4th cards.

First and fifth cards will be drawn at the clubhouse upon departure and return.

Prizes will be awarded to those that have the best poker hand as follows: 25 % of all proceeds from the derby will go to the first-place winner, 15% to the second-place winner and 10% to the third-place winner with remaining proceeds going to the Bittersweet Ski Club.

Hands will be sold for 5 dollars each or 3 hands (purchased in the same name) for 10 dollars. Those wishing to buy hands without skiing may draw all five cards at the clubhouse. There will be some door prizes for participants.

Hot chili and other refreshments will be served in the Nordic Centre.
