Come watch Olympic and World Cup skiers battle it out in an action-packed event with big air, wipeouts, high speeds, and good times! The spring sun will be out, the festival at the bottom will have fire-pits and gourmet food and drink, the atmosphere will be fun for the whole family.
An xc ski race unlike any other!! Competitors will be able to ride the chairlift up, which will be running exclusively for this event.
