Getting Ready for the Gore Nordicfest 5k Snowshoe Race

We’re almost there – the season opening 5k race at the Gore Ski Bowl (NOT the downhill ski center) is tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM. Race information including links to print/download directions are available at the Gore race page.

All speeds are welcome in both the timed 5k and the untimed 2.5k.

A couple of things to keep in mind –

  1. The forecast is calling for snow so leave some extra travel time, especially given that
  2. race check-in and day-of registration are available from 12:30 to 1:30 PM in the yurt. The Gore website indicates that they will not be able to accommodate late registrations, so arrive early – if you get there at the last minute you may miss out.
  3. Print out the Gore waiver (available on the race page) and bring it with you to save some time tomorrow.

If you need snowshoes we will have a limited number available for rental for $5 a pair.

If you’ve never done a snowshoe race before, make sure you bring some warm dry clothes to change into after the race.

Any questions, send an email to one of us (contact info) and we’ll do our best to get an answer.

And most important of all – have fun and enjoy your time in the snow!
