This classic race will showcase the best Kelowna has to offer in outdoor recreation.   The new course will take you from stunning Nordic trail networks, down back roads overlooking the valley vistas and the beautiful Okanagan Lake to winding vineyard roads past world renowned wineries, creek side and lake side running trails finished with a paddle on the picturesque lake.  Participants will Nordic ski, snowshoe trail run,mountain bike, road bike, road run and finally paddle across the finish line in downtown Kelowna in front of the Tree Beer Institute, bringing you the first annual Ski2Tree.   A range of categories provides an opportunity for both competitive athletes as well as fun loving thrill seekers to compete in another one of our kick arse events!

Thank you to all the athletes, volunteers and partners who supported the 1st Annual Ski2Tree Race!  The Day was a huge success and we look forward to growing the event in the years to come.

It is important to highlight that 100% of the net proceeds of this Series are donated to a not for profit society that supports local youth  – The  Youth Outdoor Recreation Society. (Y.O.R.S) provides affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities.  Community Support is very important to our company, we believe strongly that giving back to the community creates more opportunity and success for everyone, and where better to start then by exposing our kids to all the things we cherish about this valley.  There is no better classroom than the great outdoors.
