Course

Our 34 km competitive course consists of two 17 km loops of ideal rolling terrain designed for the novice as well as the racer. Competitive seniors (age 70 and over) may choose to ski either 17 or 34 km. Skiers who wish to ski shorter distances (classes R10 and R17) and younger skiers (classes A3 and A4) ski selected portions of the competitive course.  There is a separate course and start/finish line for A1 and A2 skiers.  (Parents are welcome to accompany their children entered in the A1, A2, A3, & A4 classes.) The R30 is a challenging, single loop, track-set trail that traverses some higher elevations.
