Race Events

15K — an exciting mixture of rolling hills, big climbs, long descents, and technical challenges

5K — a cool combination of curves, straightaways, and just enough hills to make it interesting

Fun for the Whole Family!

Be sure to bring the little ones along, as the REI Frosty Freestyle features a kids' race for children ages 5 to 11. This event provides youngsters with the opportunity to test their Nordic skiing skills on an kid-friendly course... and each child receives a custom-designed finisher's medal upon completing the race! All children who participated in the Learn to Ski program are automatically registered for the REI Frosty Freestyle Kids' Race; otherwise, the registration fee is $10 per child, payable at Packet Pick-Up/Race-Weekend Registration. Watch for Frosty the Skiing Snowman! He'll be skiing the kids' race and the 5K, and will be hanging around for photos, too!
