Bristlecone Birkebeiner Winterfest Race – Ward Mountain, NV
January 16 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm$10 – $35
The Bristlecone Birkebeiner Winterfest Race is a multi-sport winter event at the Ward Mountain Recreation Area, North Trailhead held on January 16th. Event options are cross-country ski, snowshoe, or fat tire bike!
Weather is unpredictable in Ely. Sometimes there is enough snow, sometimes there is barely enough snow, or sometimes there is none! If there isn’t enough snow, their will be a Long and Short Course Trail Run, and a Kids Trail Run that follows the same trails as the cross-country ski events. And there will be a fat tire/mountain bike event that will follow the same route as the fat tire route.
The Cross-country Ski Long Course will traverse the Birkebeiner Loop (D Loop). The Cross-country Ski Short Course and Snowshoe Course will follow the Connector Trail to the Birkebeiner Loop. The Kids Ski course is an out-and-back on the Shelter Connector Trail. And the Fat Tire Bike course is a loop using the Birkebeiner Loop, Atta Boy Loop, and Revenue Loop Trails.
**It is our priority to keep our participants, volunteers and community safe and we will be following current COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event**
