Race date for 2021-22 season is Saturday February 26 (with some small possibility of postponement to Sunday for weather conditions, but otherwise no back-up date).  Time for the mass start is the Series default of 9:30 (no advance announcement, so prepare yourself at the start location ahead of time), with 2:00 results announcement, prize/swag distribution, and free pizza for all (weather-dependent) at the Adams PNA Hall Greylock Glen gazebo (b/c of the pandemic)

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!)

Detailed Driving Directions:
  • 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.
  • Both the start and finish are in front of the gazebo, at the starred location on the map.
  • DCR removed the pit toilets (i.e., the map's "restroom") in 2021, and although the plan is to rent a portable toilet, consider stopping first in town (e.g., Adams Market, McD's).
