A glorious view met the 22 competitors who took on the annual Backwall Bash Nordic race at Manning Park Resort Jan. 14.
The full race was 16 kilometres to the peak of the Backwall Peak trail, most competitors made their way up the entire stretch with six going as far as the trail’s lookout.
Winner of the race with a time of 1:09:36 was Logan Wetzel from Bellingham, Washington. At a close second was Ewan Craig, a staff member at Manning, just one minute nine seconds later. Both were racing in the men’s peak-skate category.
Hope resident Jessica Kyle took first place in her category, she was the only woman in the category and organizers say she is looking for competition next year.
