Please Prepare Yourself Appropriately:
Skier: Skiers can utilize whatever technique they please, but there are no set tracks. The trail typically has a firm snow surface and is wide enough to skate. Skiers’ clothing must provide adequate protection from wind and cold. A small pack with extra food, water, and layers is suggested.
Skijorer: Skijorers can run up to a maximum of 3 dogs this year. Skijorers must be in control of their team at all times.
A pulk is optional for skijorers. Pulks can be used to transport a dog if needed. You may place the pulk in-between you and the dogs OR behind you.
Please bring extra food, water and layers for the skijorer and adequate snacks for the dogs.
Recruiting your own handler is good idea for the start and finish areas.
Bike: Bikers can utilize whatever type of bike they chose. We strongly recommend fat tires due to the potential for long stretches of soft and sugary snow. Clothing must provide adequate protection from wind and cold. A small pack with extra food, water, and layers is suggested.
Run: Runners should be prepared to run. Power hiking hills / short walking breaks is fine but please keep in mind the time cutoffs. The river trail will be very firm while the sections in the wood will likely be softer. A small pack with extra food, water, and layers is suggested.
