The freestyle ski race course will be partially groomed with a classic track, so classic skiers are welcome to participate in the freestyle races. However, they will be timed with the freestylers.
6km Freestyle Ski Race
The 6km Freestyle race on Saturday is designated for boys and girls up to age 19, 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 not race?
Or are you an established skier or retired racer who would rather tour than beat yourself up on the race course?
Join us for this 6km FUN, untimed tour for all skiers on Saturday, February 8. All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate.
Michigan Cup Scoring
NEW in 2020! Saturday's George Kuhn Half Ski Marathon freestyle race will count for full Michigan Cup points (starting at 200 points), instead of the 50km Okerstrom Ski Marathon, which will count for partial points (starting at 175 points). The Michigan Cup committee makes this scoring decision.
