Crust Cruising Season is Here!


Great news, crust cruisers! Last week’s snowstorm + current warm weather has the crust setting up quite nicely. It was still a tad soft in spots this morning by 8:30am, but should be getting better and better over the next few days. Get up early for best conditions.

Busted Lung 50K Cancelled

The difficult decision was made yesterday to cancel the Busted Lung 50K event scheduled for Saturday April, 5th.  The action was  based on the fact there were only a few racers who pre-registered for the event.  In consideration of the expense and manpower required to host a quality 50K event we could not proceed in hopes that a large field of skiers would just show-up and register Saturday morning.

Thank you to those who committed early for your understanding.

The Busted Lung will definitely happen next season, so mark the same weekend on your 2015 calendar  and  please pre-register.
