The Raging Elk Cardboard Derby
Not only a fun event but a great way to take care of your recycling. Participants recycle cardboard into the most creative of sleds (covered wagons, boats, helicopters the Flintstone mobile and more!!) and then ride them downhill.

Teams construct their sleds out cardboard, paint, glue and tape and cruise gracefully down a ski slope towards a target painted in the snow! This is not a race – there are no points for speed. The entries will be judged based on the construction and creativity of their design along with their accuracy to hit that target in the snow. The crafts can be simple or complex, with up to 4 “pilots’ to help maneuver the craft down the hill. A good time is assured, so get your team together.

Entry Fee:
Early Bird Entry $25+gst per craft.
Day of Registration: $30 +gst per craft.
Register @ Guest Services
