6km Freestyle  Race

The 6km Freestyle race on Saturday is designated for boys and girls, including high school racers. Please note: Skiers over age 19 may participate in the 6K race, but only the younger racers will be recognized with awards.

6km Freestyle Ski Fun Tour

Are you a newer skier who wants to partake in the fun but does not want to race?

Or are you an established skier or retired racer who would rather tour than beat themselves up on the race course?

Join us for this 6km FUN, untimed tour for all skiers on Saturday, February 9.  All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate.
