Colorado International Spring Series presented by Devil's Thumb Ranch
The inaugural 2004 CISS saw a spring meltdown not seen in over 100 years in Colorado, yet we had a World Class event and a thrilling close to the ski season. This year we’re proud to be the North American Continental Cup Supertour finals. Thanks to the support of Devil's Thumb and our many generous sponsors, we’ve got more cash and more merchandise to give away and we look forward to having even more fun than last year.

Ski with the best – and the rest
You don't have to be a pro to go up against elite skiers from around the world! When the CISS comes to Colorado, the world's top skiers will be waiting at the starting line, alongside recreational skiers racing in the open, junior and citizen categories. Anyone can enter individual races or the entire series.
Watch for US Ski Team athletes, hot off their best World Cup finishes in years. They'll be challenging top European skiers from Sweden, Norway, and Italy, all hoping to win their share of the $18,500 cash purse.
Eight days. Six races. Seven Parties.
Spring Series is about great racing, but also having a great time. Hob-nob with World Champions and Olympians at night, line up next to them on the start line the next morning, and have a coffee or backcountry ski in the afternoon. Spring in Colorado is about snow, sun and having a great time.
Don't miss out!
This year's races will continue the tradition of attracting the world's best talent to the first major international cross-country competition to be held in Colorado for many years. The series has traveled around the country to different venues and has a long history of ending the season with sun and fun.
