Race start will be 4:00 pm.

Since our on snow time for new skiers has been very limited because of the snow thaw, we are permitting first year skiers to come with the team to just ski and not race. We prefer, however, that you just do the race, gain experience, and have fun!

Sign up using the form at the bottom of this page.  Please respond by Monday (1/9), 8:00 pm.

For Varsity and most JV1 skiers, this is a Classic Race.  For JV2 (and those JV1 skiers with out classic skis) it will be a skate race.

Race distance for Varsity and JV1 is 5 km; for JV2 it will be about 3 km.
