Ski for Life 2019 will run from
Friday 8th until Sunday 10th March 2019.
Pre Event - Thursday 7th March 2019
Teams meet in Murray Bridge on the evening of Thursday 7th March for dinner and a briefing as well as boat safety inspections and an all round good night of meeting the fellow Ski For Life participants.
Day One - Friday 8th March 2019
Kicking off at Sturt Reserve, Murray Bridge, our teams will assemble for breakfast and the official opening of the event. With members of the local community invited, they kindly wave off the teams as they take off upstream with stops at Younghusband and Swan Reach finishing at Blanchetown for the night.
Day Two - Saturday 8th March 2019
Saturday morning we depart Blanchetown early bound for Cadell. Cadell is a very special place on the Ski For Life route and it is where we take part in an amazing community organised ceremony remembering those we have lost to suicide. From there we head to Caudo Winery for the worlds best sangria, on to Waikerie and finishing up at Cobdogla.
Saturday evening is a fantastic opportunity to really have some fun at the offical team dinner held at the Cobdogla Club. Here is where we can find out more about each team and share skiing stories collected over the past two days whilst indulging in a great buffet dinner.
Day Three - Sunday 9th March 2019
Sunday we head to Loxton, Martin’s Bend (near Berri) and finish with a grand finale at Renmark. This is another great opportunity for the public to come along and support the completion of the Ski For Life event at the Renmark Club. Here we will be hosting the offical Ski For Life closing celebrations that include afternoon refreshments, formal presentations and a few small fundraising initiatives. It is always a great afternoon at the Renmark Club!
From here, teams will make their way out to our final destination, Paringa Resort, where we can sit back and enjoy the accomplishment of participating in Ski For Life alongside new found friends over dinner.
Included in your registration is lunches, dinners, unpowered camping, endless fun on and off the river and an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for a vital cause!
