Mother Nature has done her part by giving us some snow, are all you Slope Dopes and Knuckle Draggers ready to go? I hope so, because it's Media One Funski time again!

Time to drag out your skis, snow tubes and snowboards, Funski 2017 is coming up fast. It's slated for January 20 and 21st at Great Bear Ski Valley, the #1 hotspot for winter sports in eastern South Dakota, just three miles from Sioux Falls off Rice Street.

What can you expect during Funski 2017? How about a 2-day event filled full of all kinds of fun activities like; A Snow Sculpture Contest, Snow Tube Races, A Rail Jam, Fat Bike Race, Cross Country Ski Race, Border Cross/Skier Cross, Frozen Leg Kickball Contest, Snowboard Giant Slalom, Zipfy Sled Races and more!

Funski 2017 is all those things, but what it is really about, is raising money to help support the Sioux Falls Children's Inn.

During 2016 alone, Funski raised over $32,000, bringing the grand total to $800,000 to date thanks to your support.

Here are a few things you need to know about Funski. Most skiing and boarding events have Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced categories so everyone is welcome. There are awards ceremonies for most events that generally take place about 15 minutes after each event ends, in the bar area of the chalet. Online registration closes at 8 AM on Friday the day events start. You can still register at Great Bear up to 1 hour before the start time of an event. However, those people wishing to participate in the snow sculpture contest must be pre-registered.

See a complete list of event times and get registered to participate here.
