The Great Ski Race

The Great Ski Race

The Great Ski Race course ends where it begins, and features the epic Starratt Pass climb from our usual start zone at Tahoe XC.  After Soup Station One, racers will keep going on the Fiberboard Freeway around Mt. Watson almost all the way to Northstar California, then swing back through whoop-dee-doos in the forest above Carnelian Bay and onto Tahoe XC’s Blue Trail to finish on a spectacular downhill to right where they started at the Tahoe XC lodge in Tahoe City.

Along its 26-km (16.2-mile) length, the race will show you some gorgeous areas you may not yet have seen on skis. Of course, as always there’ll be a finish-line party including lunch, awards, and a live band on the Tahoe XC patio. We can’t wait.
