Racing Season

Every year, GMNC organizes several races on the Grand Mesa at the Skyway Trail System. Our race events are held on some of the best snow and terrain you can find in the Rocky Mountains!

Grand Mesa Nordic Racing

The Grand Mesa Nordic Races emphasize ski racing for fun and personal fitness for skiers of ALL abilities. We make the races challenging enough for top athletes but also comfortable for the rest of us who just want to get out and test our skills against a fun course. You can expect plenty of hot soup and some great giveaways thanks to sponsors such as Justin’s Nut Butters, Kind, ProBar, and Ela Family Farms! Race schedule:
