The 2017 American Birkebeiner is one for the record books. 

Since the Birkie, Kortolopet and Prince Haaken races all had to be cancelled due to a lack of snow, skiers still enjoyed their time in the Hayward-Cable area. 

And their was a huge celebration on Saturday at the new Birkie trail head with Birkie Fest. a 5k loop freestyle ski event, live entertainment, exhibitors, plenty of food and even Birkie Brew. 

Executive Director Ben Pop said they made the best out of what they had to work with.  

Over 10,000 skiers and spectators attended Birkie Fest on Saturday.  

Next up “The Fat Bike Birkie” on Saturday March 11th-get complete details at
