Age limits and safety

Safety for our skiers is our number one priority. As such, age limits are part of our critical effort to ensure everyone stays out of harm’s way and gets home safely. See details for age limits for specific ski distances here.

The Birkebeiner course is set in the Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area which is open 7am-11pm, seven days a week. There are NO Birkie signs, skier support, trail sweep, food/aid stations, or warm-up fires. Skiers must be self-sufficient with their own food, drinks, and emergency plan. They must also share the trail with beginner skiers and non-skiers.

No refunds 

No refunds and non-transferable. Click here to see the Canadian Birkebeiner Refund, Privacy and Cancellation Statements. 

Processing and transfer fees

A processing fee for registration will be added at the payment stage, and includes a registration system and credit card fee. No sales taxes will be charged. A transfer fee of $1.95 will be charged if you need to change your ski event/distance.
