Annual Pumpkin Hunt 2023

Join Nelson Nordic’s Track Attack and Junior Racers at our popular annual Pumpkin Hunt to raise funds for our youth ski programs!

We will hide 150 pumpkins in our Enchanted Forest. Children 12 years and under are invited to hunt for a pumpkin, with our ski team athletes to guide them into the forest. FUN for the whole family!

Rubber Boots are recommended:)

Admission of $20 includes one pumpkin, two hot chocolates and 2 cookies.

In order to spread out participants and make it a fun and safe event, we will have three sessions, one beginning at 10:00 am, second at 10:30 am, and third at 11:00 am.  All tickets must be purchased online in advance at

**Please remember to bring your own mug for hot chocolate and your own drinking water. Special thanks to our generous local sponsors; Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Kootenay Coop, Oso Negro and Kootenay Bakery!

We look forward to seeing you out at the Nelson Nordic Apex trailhead on Sunday, October 22. Rain or shine!
Approx. 10 mins S. of Nelson on Hwy 6, across from Whitewater Rd.
