The 1KM and 2KM courses are intended for younger and less experienced courses and were first offered in 2017. Participants can decide, along with their teacher, what course to do. In 2020, the course was changed to take advantage of the new Arwen’s Dream trail.
Participants MUST be able to control their speed on the occasional down hill sections with a strong snow plough or wedge.
There is one 450 meter long down hill section with average 6.5% grade on Larch Hills Road between Gullan’s Gulley and Stig’s Loop on the 5K route.
