2021-22 Schedule for Feb 26 (Sat):
9:30 = Start.
1:30 = Cut-off for finish timing & ski patrol support.
2:30 = Results, w/ prizes, schwag, pizza for all @ PNA Hall.
This backcountry ski race is entirely self-supported (no aid stations): ski patrollers are on duty, but far longer response & extrication times than resort.
(Unlike prior years, this venue no longer has a back-up venue for unfavorable snowpack conditions, so Greylock or Bust!)
Full Competitive Course = 3 cycles of circuit as shown below in topo & table (course flagging colors & rules here).
Shorter Recreational Course = up to 3 cycles, bypassing bootpack by following pink flagging.
[Click in top right of map below to open in CalTopo for detailed course data.]
- As shown below, from West Road, turn onto Gould Road
- Instead of continuing straight onto Thiel Road, sharp left to stay on Gould Road, alongside which you can park on the right.
- Registration & bib pick-up at the map's starred gazebo location, which is visible from the road.
- Facilities are limited to nonexistent (i.e., two pit toilets), so consider stopping first in town (e.g., Adams Market, McD's).
