A slew of dressed up participants completed a series of activities and games around town Saturday. Race teams compete for a chance to win a heap of snow sport related prizes.

Along with limber legs, participants in the race are expected to bring a camera or camera-phone and a bag for items in preparation for a marathon of silliness combined with a healthy dose of ski industry education-in-disguise.

The charity scavenger hunt organized by students enrolled in the Ski Resort Operations and Management Program (SROAM) at Selkirk College is now in its third year.

Funds raised by the SROAMazing Race will be donated to the Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries Society (AABBS), which provides youth with avalanche trainings and courses to improve their knowledge of the backcountry.
