The two styles of skiing are Skate and Classic.
Racers may sign up for either Skate or Classic of either 22k, 33k, 44k distances. The race will roughly be two loops (22k) three loops (33k) or four loops (44k) of the black loop at Lapham Peak. Minor improvisations will be made to the black loop in order to achieve our course distances. See map below
The timing of this race is ideal for good snow conditions, however, snow conditions are not guaranteed. Lapham Peak is a snow making facility and does everything possible to keep a 1k loop open all Winter. If snow conditions do not allow us to use the full course the race will be modified to a 12k race using the 1k loop. There will be no refunds based on weather-caused cancelation.
Update: Lapham Peak opened for skiing on December 9th! They have piled up tons of snow. Go to trail info for current conditions.
All racers will be timed with race worn timers.
Cut off time will be 1 hour and 40 minutes per 11k loop.
