KNSC Nordic Ski Marathon

March 1 - March 31

Event Navigation

This is the annual KNSC Nordic Ski Marathon, but VIRTUAL!

The trail is in from Lookout to Baycrest, but you can choose when in March is best for you!
Your registration for the 2021 KNSC Virtual Ski Marathon supports all the time and money spent creating this trail and earns the bonus of an amazing buff with artwork by Kathy Sarns!

If you love this trail (and all the others) please considering making additional Donations to our trail fund to keep that corduroy coming!

The 2021 KNSC virtual Ski Marathon is all about enjoying that amazing trail through the woods. Sign up, pick your day and enjoy your ski! Report your completion at https://forms.gle/22XFC5LR7Hov5P3AA to earn your buff. You can report:
– a time for the complete trail (following the maps/signs),
– or for a modified route (LO to Diamond Ridge only? or?),
– or just report that you finished.
Everyone that enjoys this trail is a winner this year!

Safety note: because this is a month-long event choose your ski day wisely. It will not be perfectly groomed every day and there will not be safety patrols if you get injured or break equipment. This trail does go into hard to access places as a big part of its appeal, so please be prepared accordingly.
