ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED. RACE DAY REGISTRATION AVAILABLE AT THE EVENT STARTING AT 10AM.

Come accept the challenge of this 10km freestyle cross-country ski race on some of the best ski trails in Colorado. The Skuffle has been going on for more than three decades and it’s always a good time.

GMNC’s races are challenging for top athletes, but they’re also a  lot of fun for the rest of us who just want to get out and test ourselves against a beautiful, well-groomed course.

The Skyway Skuffle is a 10km freestyle race, so you can skate or classic ski (but prizes are awarded according to finish, not technique). The course map is shown below. The route: Start/finish at the Skyway trailhead. Start goes down Scales Lake Rd, then left to Arroyo, Vista Valley, Vista Ridge, Lions, Sunset and Finish at the trailhead (same as start).

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.

$25 entry fee for current members of the GMNC (discount taken at checkout). (Registration at the bottom of this page.)

$30 entry fee for non-members

Online registration ends at 7pm the night before, but race day registration is available for an extra $5.

NOTE: Road closures do happen on Grand Mesa, and there can be weather so nasty even us nordic stalwarts find it necessary to postpone a race. Please check the website or our Facebook page for late-breaking news regarding races before heading up.
