The course is the same as last year and consists of a varied, 5.8-mile loop that will feature some of the best trails that Skibowl has to offer, including plenty of fun, twisty singletrack trails. The elevation gain per lap is about 775 feet.

Racers will start at the Skibowl West main parking lot and from there follow the fun and twisty South Trail towards the Multorpor/Skibowl East area, where they will loop around Multorpor Mountain. There will be a short, steeper climb on the Summit Trail, followed by a flying descend of the Powerline Trail (the reverse of the long uphill slug at past XC races). Racers will continue to loop around Multorpor using the enchanting Rhodondendron Trail, and then climb out via Optimator Trail and coast down to the bottom of the Multorpor chairlift. From there, you will follow a wider trail back towards the start/finish area, where you - or your team mate - will start the next lap.

NO Horse Trail, Low Road, High Road, Gnar-Gnar, Fire-Hydrant or any of the other never-ending climbs or technical descents. This course will have plenty of flow and is a blast to race... for all levels of racers! The single-track is relentless!
