This is also the first race of the NENSA Zak Cup season.  If you wish to be scored for Zak Cup please enter your current NENSA number on the registration page.

Quarry Road currently has 0.8km loop that looks beautiful.  Check out pictures and stay up to date at CMSC site.

The race will be six laps or 4.8km for adults and 3 laps or 2.4km for BKL and Middle School.  More details are available on the registration page.

There is a fun and unique interval start format — with groups of 24 skiers starting at 15 second intervals, and leave 12 minutes open in the start list for those skiers to clear the course before the next “group” leaves at 15 second intervals.

Prepare your team to run their warmup (course access will have to close except for some brief course inspection breaks between each class.)

If you want to register as a team send an email roster and commitment of a check for that roster on race morning to Day of race is available, for a $10 fee.
