This backcountry ski race is entirely self-supported (no aid stations): ski patrollers (all of whom are required to be vaccinated for both flu + covid) are on duty, but far longer response & extrication times than resort.
Back-up venue for unfavorable snowpack conditions is Berkshire East.
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 orange flagging.

- 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, so consider stopping first in town (examples here & here).
