Trail Kids Super Ski Race Series

Ski Race Series for Kids Age 7-14

The Super Ski Race Series is part of the Loppet Foundation’s Trail Kids year-round programming. The race series is included with the registration fee for the 5- and 10-week Trail Kids ski programs for the Wirth location only.

The series includes entry level races for beginner to advanced skiers. The goal of the series is to introduce youth to ski racing as well as to provide some competition for more experienced skiers. Youth who would rather not be timed can “tour” the race course at their own pace.

Trail Kids participants will race in a mass start format with their team coaching groups and will be scheduled at a specific wave start time during their regular program practice time. Races will be held at one time for each ski session on both Monday and Tuesday evenings correlating to the program nights. Youth will warm up for the race in their coaching groups and continue with their practice session following the race event.

Where: In the lower stadium near the Theodore Wirth Trailhead

Race Course: All Super Ski Series events start start from the lower stadium climbing up to coaches corner and back to lower stadium. The course will be approximately 1 km in length.

Cost: The three designated races are included in the session program fees. Registered youth are automatically signed up for the races that occur on the session dates they are signed up for.

Parent Volunteers: We rely on parents to help out with timing, course control, and race number handout. We will send you a link to help volunteer a few weeks before the race date.
