Become an Event Partner

The High on Ice Winer Festival is organized by a planning committee made up of various community members who represent different non-profit organizations. The vast majority of this group is made up of volunteers who are the driving force behind the community events that take place over the weekend. High on Ice is possible because of these people and their desire to celebrate life in the North.
We welcome any and all organizatoins (sport teams, charitable organizations, clubs, and more) to coordinate a sub-event as part of the festival. Even if it's an hour or two we are happy to include new activities in the weekend program - we even help cover the costs! For example, the following organizations have helped by running different events including:
  • Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club - Cross Country Skiing Try-It Event
  • Beards Brewing - Pizza & a Pint
  • Fort St. John & District Sports Council - Sledge Hockey
  • Backcountry - Ice Fishing Derby
  • Charlie Lake PAC - snowshoeing
 If you have an idea for a community event or would like to volunteer to help with the festival, please contact us by emailing recreation@fortstjohn.ca



The High on Ice Winter Festival requires a lot of resources. The event receives support from many local businesses and that's what makes it such a huge success. Cash or in-kind donations are accepted and there are different packages available.
