Robbie Burns Canadian-style

Ski Wentworth



I found this article regarding a Robbie Burns Day event on the East Coast of Canada.  Thought it looked like good fun … that is if you can ski, which I don’t because I’m rather pathetic at it.  They do seem to be wearing jeans under their kilts … I am not sure how authentic that is although it is rather sensible.


Wear a kilt and ski for free during the the annual Ski Wentworth tradition – Robbie Burns Day to be held Jan. 19, 2013. 

Enjoy a fun kilted race, address to the haggis, prizes and more!
