The Tahoe Rim Tour, one of the most interesting and challenging cross-country ski races in the region, is set to run for it’s 8th time this upcoming Sunday, January 24th. The race begins from the back of the North Tahoe High School, travels through the trails of Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Area, then climbs to the top of the Fiberboard Freeway to an aid station at Starratt Pass. For Great Ski Race participants, the course to this point will seem familiar, but now the route diverges and the Tahoe Rim Tour continues on the Fiberboard, then enters the trail systems of Northstar. The route follows rolling terrain through Northstar before eventually reaching the finish line at Northstar Cross-Country.

The race is 26 km and includes both a classic wave at 9:00 am, and a skating wave at 9:30.
There is more then 2000 feet of climbing, making for a challenging, but spectacular course.

Several factors make the race unique and fun:
It is a point to point race.
Some of the terrain is not groomed on a regular basis, so the race gives you the opportunity to experience a route that you don’t often get to ski.
While both skating and classic styles are represented, it is the only long distance race in the Tahoe region with an emphasis on classic skiing, with the classic division counting for the Fisher Cup Race Series.

While many will race the event, you can also take your time (although not too much time as there are time cutoffs). Either way there will be a party and food waiting at the finish line in Northstar, and buses back to the start when you have had enough.

The Tahoe Rim Tour is a fundraiser for the Far West Nordic Association, and is sponsored by Northstar Resort and Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Area. To register or volunteer go to farwestnordic.org
