Skiers visiting Lake Louise ski hill over the weekend got to witness one of the most unusual races in the resort's history, as NFL mascots strapped on skis and hit the slalom course.

The mascots were visiting Alberta on an annual mascot conference, and took their antics from the field to the slopes for an afternoon of wintry fun.

Included in the race were Freddie Falcon of the Atlanta Falcons, Sir Purr of the Carolina Panthers, K.C. Wolf of the Kansas City Chiefs, TORO of the Houston Texans, SWOOP of the Philadelphia Eagles, Rampage of the St. Louis Rams, Sourdough Sam of the San Francisco 49ers, T-Rac of the Tennessee Titans and Staley of the Chicago Bears.

Freddie Falcon edged out Sourdough Sam to take the title of fastest mascot on skis.
