Barstool Ski Races

This is the event that started it all – the first barstool ski races were held in 1978 between two old guys on bar stools with skis on the bottom and beers in their hands. Today there are three categories for entry – Steerable, Non-Steerable and Open class where anything goes (almost!). Qualifying runs begin at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday, with the finals at 3pmon Sunday. It’s a great spectator sport! Wanna race? It’s only $20 to enter!

Super Fun-draiser!

This weekend long event is a local non-profit fundraiser, which benefits the Canyon QRU (Quick Response Unit), Martin City Volunteer Fire Department, Canyon Kids Christmas Fund and the Canyon Community Group and more! Not only is Cabin Fever Days a great time, but it’s also for a great cause.

A $3 Cabin Fever Days entry button is required for all Cabin Fever Days Events and to ride the Shuttle. Get your button at one of the following locations: Stonefly Lounge, Packers Roost, Southfork Saloon, Deerlick Saloon, Dam Town Tavern, or Dew Drop Inn. “Get out of Jail” buttons are also available – and recommended. Your Barstool Race experience is not complete without a trip to the Cabin Fever Days jail!

Support the fundraiser by becoming a Trapline Association member. A $5 membership fee, payable at the entrance to the winter festival, includes your Cabin Fever Days button.

NEW FOR 2016: Purchase of Cabin Fever Days or Get Out Of Jail button kindly requested when riding the Shuttle to the many events at Cabin Fever Days. Thank you for supporting our fundraiser!
