This challenging event takes place at nearby Great Glen Trails and the snow-covered Mt. Washington Auto Road. Long referred to as “North America’s Toughest 10K”, the Ski, Shoe, & Fatbike to the Clouds course has an average grade of 12% over the last 6K as you climb the final 2,200 vertical feet. While there will be competitors who are seeking to make or break a record, for others, it is the ultimate way to personally test themselves in one of nature’s most spectacular environments.
After covering 4K on the Nordic system, racers will have the historical Mt. Washington Auto Road to themselves with remarkable views of the Presidential Range and beyond. On race day, there will be a mass start of cross country skiers at 10 am, followed by the snowshoe start at 10:05 am and Fatbikers at 10:10 am. Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds is considered a true freestyle event; there will not be separate classes for classic and skate skiing. This is NOT an event for inexperienced fatbikers, skiers, or snowshoers!
