Our 4th annual Border 2 Border Ski Event, inspired by a 500KM classic ski event across Finland, will be held ONCE AGAIN this Saturday March 9th, concluding at Eagle Beach State Park. This is NOT a race but a chance to enjoy all of our groomed ski trails on the same day!
We start (with the Finnish Flag, and a bib to log your kilometers) at the North Douglas Pioneer Road, move to Eaglecrest Lower Loop parking lot and move along to the Mendenhall Campground and lake, Montana Creek and will finish at Eagle Beach State Park. There will be Finnish-themed snacks and drinks at each trail.
Here’s the B2B schedule:
North Douglas Pioneer Road: 8:00-9:30
Eaglecrest Lower and Upper Loops: 9:30-11:30 (Bring your Eaglecrest Nordic Pass and park in the lower loop lot)
Montana Creek: 2:30-3:30
Eagle Beach State Park: 4-5 with BBQ, fire, and PRIZES to follow after 5PM.
