Get ready for fast Spring conditions and your best 20km time. The Easter Bunny Hoppet 20km freestyle race, and 20km Easter Egg Roll fat bike race will take place at Swedetown Trails Saturday, March 31, at 8:30 am.
A $20 donation is suggested, and all proceeds will go towards late season grooming of the Swedetown Trails. Overall male and female winners in both races will receive $50 gift cards to local businesses. Age group winners will receive an awesome Chris Schmidt poster!
Registration only on race day and it closes five minutes before the start. The ski race is at 8:30 am and the bikes roll out at 9:15.
The 2018 Junior Bear Chase ski races are Friday, March 9, with registration at 4 p.m. and races beginning at 5:30 p.m – all at the Swedetown Chalet. The parking lot will be full, the mood will be energetic and the competition and fun will be wonderful to see! Swedetown Chalet and trails marked for the junior races starting near the Chalet are closed to general skiing during this period.
Where: Meet at Swedetown Chalet
Meet up at 7 p.m. and plan to ski at 7:15 p.m. for about an hour (depending upon the weather).
Groups will be led by skiers familiar with the trails. We will divide groups by ski ability, so everyone feels comfortable with the time/distance to ski. Please bring a headlamp if you have one. Children are welcome with an accompanying adult.
Free hot chocolate for all in the Chalet after skiing.
Bring your skis and let’s hope for clear skies to see the moon and ski in some awesome moonlight!
Michigan Tech has an opening for a part-time trail support person to help with grooming and other trail operations. See the job description for details.
