The Best of the Chippewa Valley 2022

Best Sports / Recreation Event (Non Run / Walk)

The Silver Mine Invitational invites ski jumpers from around the globe to support the ski tradition within the Chippewa Valley. A fond event in Eau Claire hearts: the U.S. National Kubb Championship welcomed another new sport to the area. –Kelly Carlson
