32 & 11 km skate ski race & 11 & 5.5 km snowshoe race - Sunday Jan 14, 2018

Boulder Lake Ski & Snowshoe Race

Registration opening soon

Sorry no refunds or name transfers. By switching to a "flash" registration process opening registration only days before the race, we are able to reduce the usual early registration risk that many racers take by signing up weeks/months before. We'll open registration once we see in the forecast decent snow conditions and safe forecasted temps. If we don't see this we'll delay the registration opening until things firm up or announce the cancellation, all before registration even opens. Weather can change drastically last minute, and director holds right to postpone or cancel race due to lack of snow and/or extreme weather circumstances if changes do occur. This decision can be made any time leading up to the race. Snowshoe race is dependent on ski trail conditions. If we can't hold the ski race the snowshoe race won't happen. We will use our best judgement in opening registration in the week before the race to ensure a great experience for racers and volunteers.

One mass start will be after the last ski wave going opposite direction over start line, and finish will be at adjoining finish line to the ski finish to utilize chip timing.
