Join us for another splendid ski race on some of the best snow and terrain in the U.S. Our races are challenging for the top athletes, but also fun for the rest of us who just want to get out and test ourselves against an enjoyable course.

The Grand Mesa Classic is a 10km race in classical technique.

We encourage skiers to show off their “classic” ski attire at this race, and we’ll give special recognition to those who race on vintage gear (25+ years old).

This race is part of the Grand Mesa Nordic Race Series presented by Empowered Energy Systems.

Bib pickup and start are at Skyway Trailhead off of Highway 65 on the Grand Mesa.

The race starts at 11 am.

Course (see map below): Start/Finish is at the Skyway Trailhead. Start down Scales Lake Road, turn left onto Lions, Vista Ridge, Vista Valley, Lions, Sunset, Finish at Trailhead.

$25 entry fee for current members of the GMNC (discount taken at checkout)

$30 entry fee for non-members
