There are no refunds given for racer cancellations
This event is subject to cancellation or date change due to high avalanche conditions. Fees refunded in this case.
The short course is the same as the original Super Tour course (see below). You will be responsible for your own shuttle and there will be no official finish line or time. The short course is a tour, not a race, and folks typically ski it in groups. Although the descent from Top of the World to the Washington Gulch Trailhead can be tricky, nordic skis can be used.
8 a.m. start
9 a.m. cutoff at the Gothic Townsite
Start at the Snodgrass Trailhead – Gothic Townsite – 403 – Top of the World – Washington Gulch Trailhead
