Family Ski & Nikkerbeiner
Gather with your Friends, Family & More!
Get Out the Knickers, Wooden Skis, and Bamboo Poles!
In 1973, the first year of the Birkie, cross country skiers were sporting the best athletic gear of the day — woollen knickers, wooden skis, and bamboo poles.
You can re-live that era by participating in the Birkie “Nikkerbeiner.” This retro 5K ski tour on wooden skis has been named after the Norwegian word for knickers. This event will take place on Main Street, Hayward, at 3:30 p.m., Friday, February 20th. The event will start just prior to the Family Fun Ski 5K/10K.
