The 2011 Equinox Ski Challenge will take place on March 19-20 at the Rendezvous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone.
The event is a springtime celebration, a season finale and an opportunity for cross-country skiers to challenge themselves to new levels. Skiers of all abilities are welcome, and participants may enter as a relay team of up to 8 people, or as a soloist in 3-hour, 6-hour, 12-hour, and 24-hour divisions.
Until March 15, the registration fee is $75/adult and $50/junior. Race-day registration is $90/adult and $60/junior. Registration discounts are available for racers who also volunteer at the race or who bring someone along to volunteer for them. Registration is free for kids under 12 participating in the 24-minute kids’ race.
The event includes a Saturday evening potluck and an all-night bonfire at the start/finish line.
Proceeds from the race benefit the West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation (WYSEF) and Manaia Youth Programs. Participants are also encouraged to bring food donations for the West Yellowstone Food Bank.
