By KMVT News

Sun Valley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The 4th annual Sun Valley Nordic Festival kicked off last weekend with the rest of this week full of activities for people of all ages.

The 9 day festival brings together skiers and families from around the country to take part in the country's most exciting Nordic Cross Country Skiing gathering.

Every day this week events are planned to coincide with an array of Nordic themed related activities.

We spoke with a representative from this year's Nordic Festival and asked what special events can spectators expect out of this year’s festival.

"Thursday night we got a really fun set of events. Out on the block in front of the post office in downtown Ketchum we've got, what's called the Downtown Jam and Nordic Town USA Sprints. So this is a really neat Nordic race where you got a circular track in a city block with music and bon–fires and food and beverages. So just a whole great week of different events" Said Jim Keating from the Sun Valley Nordic Festival

The festival will culminate this Saturday with the 38th annual Boulder Mounting Tour.

With over a thousand racers taking part in the 32 kilometer race it is by far one of the largest Nordic Cross Country Races in the North America.
