Thank you to everyone for another successful event!

The BIG CHILL is a snowshoe event that offers three challenging distances – 5kms, 15kms & 30kms – set on an old ski hill in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. The event fundraises to support youth-at-risk in Annapolis County.

Our 2023 BIG CHILL is Saturday, February 25, 2023, (March 4 is rain date, if needed)

Event can be done solo or as a team! Solo you can take on the full 5kms, 15kms or 30kms. Teams can challenge themselves in our 15kms or 30kms distances – either in a relay or group format.  As a team you can share the experience and fundraising too!

Step 1: Register for Event

  • Gather a team and complete the full 15kms loop as a group. Note: each person will snowshoe the full 15kms.
  • The 30kms course is two of the 15kms loops. Your team can complete all 30kms as a group with each member finishing the full 30kms or you can choose to share the 30kms. Note: each person will snowshoe at least 15kms.
