Cross River Ripper Fat Bike Race – cancelled for ’22

2022 race cancelled due to current restrictions

Date: Saturday, February 26, 2022


Youth – $20.00

Adult & Masters – $30.00

Race partner

The Cross River Ripper is held in partnership with Columbia Cycle & Ski.


Nipika is home to nine hand-crafted luxury log cabins. Each one is self-contained with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

The closest town is Radium Hot Springs, which is a 30 minute drive. There are a number of beautiful hotels. A quick stop at the Radium Hot Springs pools is a great way to recover those tired muscles.

Course & Distances

Fast, flowy, and a ton of fun! The course includes both Nipika’s fat bike trails (singletrack-style, groomed specifically for fat bikes) and cross-country ski trails. It showcases the northern trails with plenty of rollers and mountain and river views.

The ski trails allow riders enough room to make a pass, and the fat bike trails allow racers to feel like they’re riding summer singletrack.

Distances and categories:

5km – Youth (up to 17-years-old)

10km – Youth (17 and under), Adult (18-49), Masters (50+)

20km – Adult (18-49), Masters (50+)

Riders leave in a staggered mass start, depending on distance.


Check back in Fall for registration for the ’22 race!

Post Race Fun

Join us for a family-friendly barbecue (included with registration) and awards ceremony following the race. Additional BBQ tickets can be purchased onsite.

Bring your family out for the day or weekend and spend time tobogganing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and fat biking together.
