Youth Ski Festival Sunday, March 9th
Snow is falling in West Yellowstone, Montana, and skiers of all ages are invited to participate in the 34th annual Yellowstone Rendezvous Race on March 8, 2014. Race organizers have been busy marking the course and making final preparations for the event. If you have been to the Rendezvous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone at any time this season, you’ll know the skiing has been great all winter.
The Yellowstone Rendezvous Race is part of the American Ski Marathon Series and is a big part of the history of cross-country skiing in West Yellowstone. This year, the Yellowstone Rendezvous race is happy to welcome Holiday Inn West Yellowstone as the title sponsor! There are six different race divisions offered for skiers of all ages. Marathoners can enter the 50 kilometer freestyle race, which consists of two laps around the perimeter of the Rendezvous Ski Trail system. Racers can enter the 25 kilometer classic or freestyle events, and the 10 kilometer race is a great choice for those preferring a shorter distance. The 5k and 2k races are geared for kids.
Register before February 25th to save on entry fees. Race registration deadline is Thursday March 6th at 12 noon. Please visit www.rendezvousrace.com for more information, and find us on Facebook for the latest grooming reports and updates on the race.
