Winter Carnival is fast approaching, with only weeks to go. More and more events are getting set, and Rossland Winter Carnival organizer Lisa Wegner said it’s lining up as the biggest one ever.
This year, there will be some huge prizes to win, with both Red Mountain Resort and Powderhound stepping up to offer the prizes.
A pass for Red will be given out for participation in the Winter Carnival Parade, while Powderhound has donated a choice of any set of skis they own to the winner, announced at the Olaus Ice Palace.
The old favourites are back, including the Sonny Samuelson Bobsled Race, the Rail Jam and others.
There are also some new events, such as the Olaus Cup hosted by the Rock Cut Pub.
Wegner said they are still in need for a co-ordinator for the John Heintz Relay, which is a race from the top of Red Mountain to the Lions campground.
More volunteers are always appreciated as well.
“We are always excited and grateful to our sponsors, community volunteers and people in the community,” Wegner said.
The carnival has a brand new website at www.rosslandwintercarnival.com where you can see all the events as they are scheduled, as well as sign on to volunteer.
