Lots of racing opportunities at the end of 2019 and in 2020.
Get your game on. Or, if you are like most of us, come out and “tour with a bib” and enjoy your community of fellow skiers, great groomed trails, and beautiful views of the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains.
Most of the races have multiple distances, so pick one, long or short, and have some fun.
