Skimo Wednesday Night Race League – Week 5
Skimo race league is a low key racing environment based more on having fun and less about glory. Skimo, or ski mountaineering, allows racers to skin up the course and ski down. All races are now from 6pm – 7:30pm
*There will be a 7pm cutoff for uphill traffic. If you have not started your second or third lap by 7pm, you will be asked to drop down to the lower category. This is due to the course needing to be taken down in a timely manner.
There are 5 weeks of ski mountaineering races from January 9 – February 6
This will offer folks a chance to try this growing sport or event to help gain some experience and training for those competing in the Whitefish Whiteout February 9. The new SkiMo League requires skins, a helmet, a headlamp, and some wayfinding ability. Courses will be marked in the chair 3 to upper chair 2 areas and consist of loops where beginners may choose fewer loops than experienced skimo racers.
