Big White played host to a race in the snow over the weekend of Dec. 12; but this race featured cars instead of skis and snowboards.

The Canadian Rally Championship wrapped up their 2021 season with the two-day rally at Big White over Dec. 11 and 12.

Teams from across Canada travelled to the mountain to compete, and it was the team of Kyle Tilley and Alessandro Gelsomino who took first at the Okanagan race.

The championship overall went to the team of Andre and Rene Leblanc however, who came into the race with a lead in the championship and finished with enough points to hold their position.

The racers put their cars through the snow and the dark started at 4:23 on Dec. 11 before coming back the next evening to finish the race.
