Trail and Course Access

No foot traffic is allowed on the racecourse. All non-racing team members on skis must have a valid trail pass.

Spectators are allowed at the start/finish area (near Jan's Place). Access to the racecourse is limited to coaches and racers only. When each race starts, only racers are allowed on the course (no skiers warming up for the next race). If there is sufficient natural snow, skiers can warm up on non-course trails. Trails are closed to the public. 

Anyone training prior to race day must have a valid trail pass. Team practices must be on the regular practice schedule.


Waxing is allowed near the start/finish area. Electric outlets are not available; generators are permitted.
