Birkie Tour

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Each year 2,100 participants are selected on a first-come, first-served basis to take part in this challenging, 40-mile fat tire event that takes place on Saturday of the Festival weekend. While a few compete for the chance to be called champion, it is the citizen class athletes who are in it for the adventure and personal challenge inherent in the sport that make up the bulk of the race field. The BirkieTour is an untimed, non-competitive, “open-track” style event on a loop course up to 47 km. Spend the day skiing with family and friends with a morning start time window, short and long distance options, aid stations along the trail, and food and beverage at the start/finish when you’re done. Best of all, you’ll be skiing, either classic or skate, on one of the best cross-country ski trail systems in the World. You can even get credit for skiing a Worldloppet event.
