EVENT DESCRIPTION

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. The race course is on an alpine ski area (Hilltop Ski Area), starting at the top and finishing at the bottom. The mountain is open exclusively for this event; only Nordic skiers on the mountain. No downhill skis or snowboards allowed. 

The course will feature table tops, rollers, corners, big (and little) jumps, and of course a sprint uphill in the middle. There will be over $15k worth of of prizes and schwag to giveaway from Odlo, Skullcandy, Oakley, Toko, Arcade, Create38, AMH, Chain Reaction Cycles, and more. Most competitors and fans will win something!! There will be a Kiddie Cross mini park for the young ones to rip through for hours!
