Snow skating brings more excitement to Rossland Winter Carnival

Rossland Winter Carnival has a new event: the Death Race. Check out this snow skating event on Sunday at noon.

This Winter Carnival weekend, Rossland will hold its very own Death Race.

A new event, the Death Race is a snow skating race down Spokane St. that will take place Sunday, Jan. 31 at noon.

“[A snow skate] is like a skateboard with a ski on it instead of wheels,” explains Jesse Cox, organizer for the event.

Participants in the Death Race will take off down Spokane St. all at once and the winner will collect the pot from the entry fees.

Cox estimates there will be 15 to 20 people participating in the event.

“Everyone is just going to [register] in the morning before the race,” he says. “I know who has all the boards in town, so it’ll be about 15 or 20.”

The entry fee is $10 and helmets, waivers and leashes are mandatory.
