This unique 26k point-to-point ski begins at North Tahoe High School and ends at Northstar California XC Ski Center. With one aid station on Starratt Pass, and lunch and awards awaiting at the end, this is the perfect ski race/tour to kick off Tahoe's local race series.
One continuous loop beginning and ending at Tahoe XC, this 20k race is considered one of the most iconic and scenic freestyle Nordic races in Tahoe. With 5k, 10k, and 20k options, it's perfect for every level of skier.
This 30k Tahoe-City-to-Truckee race is the main fundraiser for TNSAR (Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue) and the biggest Nordic ski race west of the Mississippi. Come snowstorm or shine, we support this event wholeheartedly. Plus, we can't wait to learn what color T-shirt we'll get this year...
Raise your hand if you remember the Tahoe World newspaper. According to Skip Reedy, former director of Tahoe Nordic Center, these races constitute great Tahoe traditions:
"The Tahoe World Championship was a 10k race in December,
meant to prepare you for the 15k Alpenglow Race in January, which really
was to prepare you for the 30k Great Ski Race in March. All of which
culminated in the community SnowFest Parade."
Over 40 years later and we're still holding strong. If you wonder how best to prepare for these events, take a FREE skate or classic lesson from us, or pay for a private lesson with skilled instructors. All levels of skiers are welcome and there's plenty of time to train!

Congratulations to local Tahoe City athlete, former Strider Glider and recipient of the 2018 Kevin Murnane Scholarship, JC Schoonmaker, who just competed in his first World Cup in Dresden, Germany. Here's what the announcers had to say:
"That’s exactly why you take a 19 year old with that kind of ability and put him in the World Cup because he’s gonna need this experience to be in the final in 2 years’ time."
Thank you to everyone who supported the Peter Holmes Fundraiser on December 18th. The event was such a success that Peter exceeded his fundraising goal, which means he donated $350 to the Kevin Murnane Scholarship Fund. Thank you, Peter!
