The Snow Valley Open race at the Onion Lake cross country trails Jan. 16 had 74 competitors ages 3-57, and race organizer Travis Carter said temperatures were mild with a light snow.

“It went very well… lots of smiles from the kids,” he said, adding that there were no injuries.

The club has not run the event since 2013 due to poor snow conditions the last few years, but this year there was well over 125 people including family and over 20 well-appreciated volunteers.
