The Helly Hansen Big Mountain Battle (BMB) tour is coming back to Fernie for it's 4th year!!
We invite you to get a partner and join in the fun and excitement of the ultimate scavenger hunt!! The BMB will take you to all corners of the mountain and send you hiking up a climb you would have never thought to do! You and your buddy have to complete a team card where you search around the mountain for hidden checkpoints, take certain runs and lifts as well as hike certain sections while being tracked in real time GPS by our friends at Flaik. How quickly can you complete your team card requirements? The fastest teams score amazing Helly Hansen prizing and product from our other sponsors!! Best part is after the race you and your partner can log onto the FLAIK website and see a map of the route you took through the race along with other fun stats – distance, speed etc.
With 2 different courses – intermediate and advanced there is a challenge for everyone! The Intermediate course is great for families or solid intermediate skiers/riders. The Intermediate course will be the same as the advanced one with fewer checkpoints and hikes. For those that want the challenge of completing all the requirments on the team card...they can take on the main advanced course for your change to win the big prize of Helly Hansen gear!!
Registration is $80 per team ($40 per person) and you can register for the event at www.bigmountainbattle.com. Registration will be available day of as well but will be $10 more per person (so $100 per team) so register before Feb. 8th!
