Festival Passports

Each Festival participant receives a Festival Passport as part of the packet pickup process at the Race Office. Festival participants rotate through the various Festival Events with a suggested starting location. Skiers receive a stamp for participating at each station. At the end of the day skiers turn in their completed festival passports in the lower stadium area. All skiers who complete all six events and get a stamp at each one receive a completion prize.

Festival Events

Fish Scale Frenzy

Join in these beginner-friendly races! Must have fish scale skis to participate. Limited number of skis available from the Youth Ski League trailer on site. Waves starts will go off by age groups. 1.5k or 2k options. This is an untimed event. Finishers will earn a participation ribbon.

Skier Tug of War

Practice your snowplowing and pull-ups, folks, because this is a slippery battle of strength and maybe a little bit of how grippy your gloves are! All ages U-16 and under welcome.

Paintball Biathlon

Test your aim with this accuracy challenge. Try out a paintball or laser rifle to shoot with accuracy.

Medallion Hunt

Follow clues presented throughout the morning at the information tent to locate a hidden medallion! Prizes for the winner.


Enjoy a nice bonfire and cook up some s’mores while cheering on your friends on the ski course!

Snowflake Decorating

Bring back winter with some colorful snowflake decoration and design. We need all the winter spirit we can get!
