Race highlights include a fat bike XC race, staged downhill fat bike race, and dual slalom fat bike challenge. This slalom race will be unlike any other, with fat bike racers going head to head against snowboarders and skiers for a chance to win $500 in cash.
The XC race will consist of a long course that will cover 17 miles and 2000' of elevation gain, and a short course that will be 9 miles. The DH race will consist of 2 timed stages, using Calculated Risk and Juggler Joe. XC and DH races cost $39 each to register, dual slalom is $10 and if you would like to try your hand at all the events, you can get in for $75.
In addition to racing, there will also be a silent auction as well as a "Loose in the Moose" after party with live music and good times in the Moosehead Saloon and Main chalet. All funds from the silent auction will go towards the all-weather trail.
Sunday will see the continuation of fat bike Sundays, with more lift accessed fat biking for those who didn't get enough on Saturday.
