Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7 a.m.— SOUTH POMFRET — Support our local Woodstock Ski Runners at the first ever Saskadena Six Uphill Race deemed: “The Hard Mile!”
Is it competitive? Yes. Do you need to compete? No. Enjoy the beautiful setting that is Saskadena Six and take a skin up the Easy Mile with a free ski down the empty hill before the resort opens. Go as fast as you want, alone, with friends (no 4-legged ones please unless they are in your backpack), this will surely be a great community event for the ever building skinning community here at Saskadena Six (S6).
Turn the Easy Mile into the Hard Mile! The race start is at the bottom of Easy Mile (near the Woodstock Ski Runners Clubhouse). Finish Line will be at the top of Easy Mile adjacent to the ski patrol hut. Upon finishing at the top, participants can leisurely swap out their skins and free ski/ride to the bottom.
Awards for men’s and women’s first, second and third as well as best dressed male and female. Meet on the back deck of the S6 main lodge after your free ski down the hill for coffee, pastries and awards.
Entry cost is $15 per person. Skis equipped with skinning/touring gear and/or split boards are required (no snowshoes). Saskadena Six does not have uphill equipment rentals.
Registration is open through Feb. 3 at 12-noon (there will be no same-day registration).
Bib pick-up: 7-7:45 a.m. Men’s start time is 8 a.m.; women’s start time is 8:05 a.m.
