2021 Ranch2Ranch Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trek
February 6 - February 7
2021 Ranch2Ranch Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trek is On!
It’s on! We are happy to announce we will be hosting our annual Ranch2Ranch Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trek on both Saturday and Sunday, February 6th or 7th. Due to the size limitations imposed by the county, we are offering registration for either day.
This is your chance to ski or snowshoe on the groomed Fraser to Granby trail, as well as the Snow Mountain Ranch trails, and help us fundraise for Nordic programs for youth and schools in Grand County. The trail runs between Granby Ranch Ski Area and Snow Mountain Ranch (YMCA) and is 12km—or ski back for 24km!
Unfortunately, due to COVID, this year we will not be able to provide a shuttle bus or lunch. Start at Granby Ranch and part at the Oregon lot. Parking is also available at Snow Mountain Ranch.
Granby County has asked us to do a wave start. Check in will be from 9:00am – 10:30am at Granby Ranch Ski area ONLY at the base area. All participants must check in before starting in order to get your bib and trail pass. You will be asked to select one of three time slots: 9-9:30am / 9:30-10am / 10-10:30am. The route will be marked but this is an untimed event and not a race! There will be two aid stations along the way with snacks and refreshments and medical personnel will be available.
Rental equipment is available at Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center. Be sure to stop by on the way if you need equipment.
Cost is $30 for Grand Nordic members and $35 for non-members. Please sign up by Thursday, February 4. Any registrations Friday, February 5 will cost an extra $5. There will be NO onsite, day-of registration. Memberships available on the Grand Nordic website at: www.grandnordic.org.
As always, COVID restrictions apply. Please be respectful of social distancing, stay home if you feel ill, and please bring a mask to wear it around others, including check-in and aid stations. Masks are not necessary while skiing unless you’re in close proximity.
