Race Information

The 21st Annual TRC

For the last 2 decades the Teton Ridge Classic (TRC) has been one of the premier classic events in the region. This year we are racing a new venue that offers incredible classic skiing that is reminiscent of the original venue. Like the original race we are returning to our roots and linking the event to a local ranch where people can stay and we can all gather post-race to swap stories, refuel, and hand out awards.

We are currently working with 6 different stakeholders/landowner groups to make this event happen and we want to be fully transparent that this is a huge undertaking. In addition to the amazing purpose-built nordic trails that the course will be on, we will be adding a few new sections of trail that have never been groomed before. This includes a highway underpass, a rolling bike path, and even an uphill classic single-track section through the woods. We skied the loop a ton last year and frankly the potential is amazing. That said, there are some unknowns on how the entire course will groom out and we still have some work to do with the landowners and government agencies. As such, for year one, we are doing a low-key test race where we will be looking for feedback from the nordic racing community. This year’s TRC will have approximately a 16 km and 8 km course and a juniors 4 km course. Future years we hope to bring back a 25 km distance.

Streubel Legacy Scholarship

This scholarship was created in honor of very dedicated and long-time nordic advocates in Teton Valley, Dan and Melisa Streubel. They both have given so much to cultivate the cross country community by running races, coaching kids, donating countless hours of their time, and in general sparking a love of cross country.

This scholarship will be awarded to one athlete on the Teton Valley Ski Education Foundation (TVSEF) cross country team each year based on merit and input from coaches. The funds will cover competition and registration fees. As this fund grows, TVSEF hopes the award may also serve as a gear stipend for athletes to purchase new skis, poles, boots, etc. to help them achieve their competition goals.
