Here Comes Blink Skifestival 2019!

Time flies. Summer is almost upon us. And the highlight of the summer for skiers and bi-athletes alike is Blink Skifestival, traditionally held in & around Sandnes, Norway.

This year’s Blink kicks off on July 31st and goes on till August 3d.

Arne Idland, the man who conceived, developed and runs the world’s only summer ski & biathlon festival want you – yes, you! – to remember that registration for Blink -2019 opens May 7th at 10.00 local time.

All Norwegian wanna-be participants need to apply here

All the foreign ones need to contact Arne directly

While participation in races is open to virtually anyone, the amount of slots available runs out extremely quickly as registration opens. So, the very best of luck!

Arne Idland: ” All cross country skiers are welcome to Blink: families with young kids (our kidcamp for kids who want to try rollerskiing and lasershooting for the first time) active kids and youth from 10 years to 16 years, juniors, recreational skiers and elite athletes! “

We can’t but use this opportunity to remind you what makes Blink so special, whether you are participant or spectator:

For those who miss the stars – here they are, at the starting grid
Recognize this gentleman? yes, Blink is the only place where world’s best skiers and bi-athletes compare side by side and, at times, in the same races
“Relaxed atmosphere”? Check!
chance to show the big guy how your spent your summer so far? Check!
a moment of reckoning to change your training routine? Check!
Tradition prevents many in winter sports from talking about money in detail – but just consider this: Blink’s budget is about 2-3 times bigger than your average World Cup event. No, you won’t get freebies because of that – but you get a better show
