Awards and Prizes

Our event has two courses: a long and a short. If you enter the Long Course but reach the cut off point (Spanky’s Ladder) too late, you will be directed to the finish via the short course and be automatically moved to that category. You are also allowed to decide on the spot to “short yourself” and finish the race via the short course. 

Just because you don’t have race skis and lycra, shouldn’t stop you from entering the Long Course race. We will classify non-race (heavy metal) racers separately from competitors with race skis (open)! 

If you are competing on skimo race gear, we strongly recommend entering the long course. You are still allowed to enter the short course but you will not be eligible for the podium (only draw prizes). 

  • Long Course “Open” Male and Female Podium (this is the spandex/skinny ski category)
  • Long Course “Heavy Metal” Male and Female Podium (this is for anyone on “normal” touring gear)
  • Short Course  Male and Female Podium (anyone can enter this category but athletes with race equipment will not be eligible for the podium)
Cash awards for Long Course Open Podium. Good prizing (TBA) for other category podiums. For everyone else, draw prizes to be announced but expect swag from all our sponsors: Escape Route, Dynafit, Petzl, Arc’teryx, Blue Ice, Julbo, Ultimate, and more! Last year almost everyone got something cool!
