SKIMO RACE LEAGUE (presented by Great Northern Brewing)
5 weeks of Ski Mountaineering Races from Jan 8 - Feb 5.

Basic Info
Skimo race league is a low key racing environment based more on having fun and less about glory. Skimo, or ski mountaineering, allows racers to skin up the course and ski down.

TIME - All races are now from 6pm - 7:30 pm to create a better community and give you a chance to make it up after your day at work. You must check in by 5:45 to be included in the race. Race starts at 6pm. Awards are at 8pm.

GEAR - SkiMo League requires skins, a helmet,a headlamp, and some wayfinding ability.

LOCATION - Registration and Check in are located at the Events Office ( MAP )
Courses begin at end at the events office at 6pm. See map below.
Awards are at the Bierstube ~ 8pm.

DIVISIONS
All Racers race the same course
Divisions are broken down by gender, and by number of laps. (no age or equipment based divisions)
Changing divisions (from 3 laps to 2 for instance) can easily be done at check in (closes at 5:45).

  • ***There will be a 7 p.m. sharp cutoff for uphill traffic. If you have not started your second or third lap by 7 p.m. You will be asked to drop down to the lower catagory.This is due to the course needing to be taken down in a timely manner.***
