All skiers and participating parents must be registered and have signed a waiver during registration. Chelsea Nordiq’s youth greatly appreciate your support from this fundraiser!

Rain or shine; being out there on skis with your community and enjoying those cookies will be fun no matter what weather it is!
We’ll update this page by 7 am on the day of the event if the weather is really bad and requires the Cookie Beiner to be cancelled…
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds in case of cancellation.
What to Bring?
Bring water (plenty of it!), a watch, skate or classic skis, your club uniform, fun costumes (or hats, wigs etc.), sunglasses and appropriate clothing.
Parking is always tight. The more carpooling the better… - The wise skier
Skiers will ski in groups with their friends or families. Maps and passports will be provided. Skiers decide how far they want to ski – it’s not a race. Volunteers will be on the trail at the road crossing, key intersections and at the huts. Parents need to accompany younger skiers or make arrangements for those needing supervision.
Checkpoints include Fortune Lake, Keogan, Shilly Shally, Huron, and Western huts, the Red Tent (at the intersection of trail #1 and #24), and the intersection of Wolf Trail and #1.
Skiers will not be allowed to continue past the intersection of trail #1 & #2 (entrance to Western) or past the Chelsea Nordiq Red Tent after 10:45 am. This will ensure everyone gets back to P9 by 12:45 PM!
