How do I sign up?

You have a few options:

Where do I register?

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. in the KinCentre (780 Landslide Rd). Please check in with us to receive your bib number before you hit the trails. Please note: it is a rolling registration. You do not have to arrive at 8:00 a.m. Feel free to register in time for your team to complete your desired distance before noon.

How much does it cost to participate? Is there an entry fee?

All individual adult participants must collect a minimum $50 in pledges to participate. Children under 16 are free. Any individual (adult or child) who collects $150 or more in pledges will get a Ski the Trails Sauce Toque (first 50 to register and raise the minimum).

I don’t have equipment – can I still come to ski or snowshoe the trails?

Yes! The Hiawatha Highlands has rentals available – to check rental rates, click here.

This is a great way to try out the trails for the first time while supporting the hospital!

Is this a race? Do I have to ski/snowshoe or fat bike all of the trails?

No - while it started as a friendly competition, now it is just a fun event. Feel free to participate at your own pace. The event welcomes all ages from beginners, racers to life-long skiers. Come and join in on the fun.

Can children participate?

Yes. We’ve seen children on skis or in sleds – and even strapped onto their mom or dad. It’s fun for the entire family.

Where is the pancake brunch?

Join us for pancakes at the Water Tower Inn from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (enter the Pavilion main entrance and proceed to The Grand Hall)

Can friends/family join the breakfast even if they didn’t ski/snowshoe/fatbike?

Yes. The cost is $10.00 for children under 12 and $15.00 for adults. Breakfast is free for all registered event participants.

​Join us for the 10th Annual Ski the Trails SAHF fundraising event on Sunday, March 1, 2020, at Hiawatha Highlands.

Ski the Trails is a story of a friendly competition that became a fundraiser. In 2010, Dr. Phil Dopp and Dr. Jamie Curran, dared each other to ski all of the trails at Hiawatha Highlands.  Each of them met the challenge, (which is no small feat at 34 kilometres!) and were left wanting more. 

Inspired by their achievement, they set a new goal: why not motivate others and turn their passion for skiing and healthcare into a fundraiser for the hospital?

Ski the Trails has now raised over $100,000 for medical equipment at Sault Area Hospital, and is an event that many look forward to every year!
