The Freebird Ramble Skimo Race & Relay, put on by Spokane’s Rambleraven Gear Trader, made its ski race debut last February and will return to 49 Degrees North Feb. 24, 2024. AT and tele skiers and splitboarders can choose from one solo lap as well as a solo six-hour endurance race or a 2-4-person six-hour relay race where racers complete as many laps as they can. The uphill course starts at the main lodge and follows Portal to Silver Ridge to the summit (2.3 miles with 1,860 feet of vertical). The downhill route is up to the racers.
Registration cost is $70 for the solo one lap, $125 for solo six hour, and $225 for relay six hour (register early and save up to $50). Race day registration will only be available for solo one-lap participants. Register today and start training for the uphill! The event will also include a demo day with the chance to try the latest equipment from Rambleraven for free. Come up and cheer on the racers and demo some gear! Or sign up here. (OTO)
