Washington Cup Series

We are proud to be a part of the Washington Nordic Cup, a series of races for young competitors to develop their skiing and racing skills independent of the Junior National qualifying circuit. Athletes from around the region will compete this weekend for points, all building toward the season-ending finale races in March. Participants in the Washington Cup should follow the below distance guidelines to be scored:

U8, U10: 1.2 km

U12, U14: 2.5 km

U16+: 5 km

Any skiers wishing to ski a different distance for their age will receive the minimum points score for that event in the Washington Cup.

Registration and Fees

Online, advance registration is strongly encouraged because it greatly helps the volunteer crew organizing the race. (Note: there is no pre-registration for the U8 lollipop race. U8 skiers register in person on race day).

Entry Fees for online registration through Sunday, December 23 (fees go up after that):

Lollipop            Free

Age 8-17           $10

Ages 18+          $20

Cost for online registration goes up $5 after December 25, and closes at 8 pm on 12/28.

Day-of-race registration will be available for $10 above the early price. Day of race registration is 8:30 – 9:30 am. Day-of-race payment is by check or exact cash only.

Trail passes are not required for racers or spectators.
