Ski the Peak

Race Info

Styles

The two styles of skiing are Skate and Classic.

Distances

Racers may sign up for either Skate or Classic of either 22k, 33k, 44k distances. The race will be roughly two loops (22k), three loops (33k), or four loops (44k) of the black loop at Lapham Peak. Minor adjustments will be made to the black loop in order to achieve our course distances. See map below

Weather Modification/Cancelation

Last season, Lapham Peak opened for skiing on December 9 and the remained open with good conditions throughout the season. 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:  For current trail conditions, go to the trail info page on this site. 

Timing

Race numbers and a timer will be provided for participants. Loop and finished times will be recorded. 

Cut off time will be 1 hour and 40 minutes per 11k  loop.

Race Start

Ski the Peak is scheduled to start at 9:00 AM. This race is intended to have a mass start. However, depending on registration volume, waves may be established and determined as necessary. If this occurs, the website would be updated and email notifications would be sent out to registered skiers. Seedings would then be made based upon the information obtained at the time of registration.  

Finish Areas

The race will begin and end at the Homestead Hollow location, which has a heated, flush men and women's bathroom. In addition, registration will be held in the heated Trekker Lodge, which is also located at Homestead Hollow.
