Registration is Now Open!
Dear XC Ski Racers and Recreational Athletes:

We are excited to present the 2021 Virtual SISU Ski Fest!

We challenged ourselves to come up with a virtual event that would be fun, safe and competitive. We wanted to give you something to plan for, train for and look forward to without worry that the event will be cancelled or you will put yourself at undue risk to participate. Yes, we know that it's not the same as our traditional race. We know and understand some of you will take a pass this year. But we also anticipate there are plenty of you who will appreciate having the opportunity to participate in SISU '21 despite travel restrictions and our inability to gather in large numbers this year.

This year requires sisu! Size up the situation and make the most of it! Have fun with our A-G-E "SISU Factor" time adjustments. Try to win! Challenge your friends! Plan to meet up and race in small groups. Take it easy and ski with family. Post your results and photos to share with our ski community.

Check out our new website at! We will provide frequent updates to keep you informed between now and race time.

On behalf of the SISU Board and Planning Team,

Jackie Powers
Race Director
