A 21k Classic & Skate Nordic race, the Owl Creek Chase has been a premier Rocky Mountain cross-country ski race since 1985. The challenging course from Snowmass to Aspen presents the very best that Colorado skiing has to offer: tough climbs, scenic views, thrilling descents and excellent snow conditions. With a $1200 prize purse, prize money will be awarded for the Classic Race to the top 3 Men and top 3 Women.
The Owl Creek Chase TOUR – a scenic point to point Nordic tour starting at Two Creeks in Snowmass and ending at the Aspen Nordic Center. The tour presents a rare opportunity to ski the entire Owl Creek Chase route without taking your skis off at the road crossings, with refreshments along the course, and soup and beer at the finish at the Aspen Nordic Center. Support (Aid Stations) are provided along the tour route, as well as a free shuttle from Aspen to Snowmass. A suggested donation of $20 to the Aspen/Snowmass Nordic Council is greatly appreciated.
Registration is required for both the race and tour – click here for details and registration information.
