Two Tumbler Ridge athletes have qualified to participate in the BC Winter Games, to be held in Trail on the weekend of 24-26 February. Esther Walkley and Daniel Helm will both represent Zone 8 (northern and northeastern BC) in the sport of cross country skiing. They will take part in both classic and freestyle races.
The BC Winter Games brings together the top athletes in the province that were born in 1991 and 1992, and includes a large variety of winter sports.
Both Esther and Daniel are looking forward to this event with great excitement, hoping to ski their best, meet many new people and travel somewhere interesting and new. A special plane has been chartered to transport the Zone 8 athletes from Fort St John to Penticton.
