Boulder Nordic Sport (BNS) is excited to announce their sponsorship of Devil’s Thumb Ranch and Winter Park, Colorado’s new event: The Stagecoach Classic, a point-to-point classic technique-only race starting at Devil’s Thumb and ending in downtown Winter Park. Taking place on Saturday, January 25, the event will include a 30km classic cross-country ski race with cash prizes, 15km classic tour, a kids’ race and more. There is more fun after the race in Winter Park, with a BBQ, live music and beer garden from Great Divide Brewery. There will also be an after party cocktail hour at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
The former Idlewild trail system, making up 15k of the course, connected Tabernash, Fraser, and Winter Park and was arguably some of the best Nordic skiing in Colorado. Experience this unique opportunity to ski a piece of history, as the trail will only be groomed for skier access this one time during the 2013-14 season. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Trout Unlimited campaign to protect and preserve the endangered Fraser River.
The Stagecoach Classic will be a great opportunity to score some great prizes and to enjoy a beautiful and unique course. The top five males and females in the 30km Race Division will be awarded a cash prize of up to $400 and $3,000 in-kind products will be awarded to the winners in each of the races.
So come join Boulder Nordic Sport as Devil’s Thumb Ranch hosts The Stagecoach Classic this January, and see if you can beat BNS founder Nathan Schultz!
