Course & Distance

3, 6, 13, and 26 km courses will be set on the private Teton Ridge Ranch acreage.  The 26 km race will consist of 2 laps and the 13 km race will consist of 1 lap. Maps will be available at packet pick-up and race morning detailing the course.

The Ranch will groom the 13 km race course loop starting in December and then daily, if needed, the week leading up to the race.   There is no skiing at the Ranch before the race except from 2-5 pm on Friday afternoon, the day before the race and Sunday, the day after the race.   Racers will have to sign a liability release prior to skiing on Friday.  Liability releases will be available at the barn parking area.

The terrain for classic skiing is some of the best in the Western US. The race course will be on rolling terrain through meadows, Lodgepole and Aspen forests, with views of the valley floor and the Grand Tetons. Despite climbing 700' for the 13 km loop the entire course will be skiable in the track.

There will be two aid stations (water and Heed sports drink) – one at 10 km and one at the lap area near the start/finish.

Please Don’t Litter – The Teton Ridge Ranch is a private ranch which we are guests of. Please don’t drop your empty gel packets or energy bar wrappers – they don’t degrade and someone will have to pick them up. Please put them in your pockets or give them to volunteers at the aid stations.
