Alta Vista Skiathalon

Saturday, February 24, 2024

Once again, we are excited to host the annual Alta Vista race! The race will be a skiathlon format, so be sure to bring both classic and skate skis. As always, we will have hot chocolate and the possibility for PR's.

Race Information:

  • This year’s skiathlon format means racers will ski the first (1st) lap of the race using classic technique and the second (2nd) lap using skate technique. Racers will have a transition zone to swap from their classic equipment to their skate equipment.

  • You can also register as a 2 person team for 3km, 7km and 16km. One team member will race Classic and then tags their partner who then skis the Skate leg of the race.

  • If you only want to do the classic lap or the skate lap and you need a partner then let us know and we will help you find one.

  • If registering in the team category each participant must register separately and put team name on the registration page.

  • Race is located at the Alta Nordic Trail. Address: 20 Alta School Rd Alta, WY 83414.

  • Start Time 10am, be sure to get there early to warm up and dial in wax.
