Ski Rennet Race Day

Registration is open! Register now for the virtual race.

How Does the Virtual Rennet Work?

  1. Ski on the trail of your choice, anywhere in the world! Please make sure that wherever you ski, you follow local rules and regulations, including purchasing trail passes if required. If you are wearing your bib on a Three Rivers trail, a season or daily pass will not be required that day.
  2. Document your adventure! Whether you ski the distance you originally signed up for or want to mix it up, wear your race number and take a photo of yourself and share it by using #skirennet and posting to the Signature Races Facebook page.
  3. Be entered to win prizes! Our great sponsors have generously given us prizes — from apparel and accessories to stone grinding and waxing — that we will randomly award at the end of the virtual race. 
  4. Tell your friends — registration is still open!

Note: If you race in a Three Rivers park, wear your race number on the day you race and a daily or season pass will not be required.


Entry in the Virtual Ski Rennet is $25, and all registrants will receive a custom beanie and buff. For those planning to race in Three Rivers, wear your race number on the day you ski, and a pass will not be required. Without a race number, a daily or season pass is required for all skiers ages 12+.

Swag and Awards

All registrants receive a custom beanie and buff. The Virtual Ski Rennet is not time-based, so all other awards have been eliminated this year.
