On February 16 skiers of all ages and abilities are invited to the Cross Country Ski Center to have fun and race in the annual Lumberjack Scramble.
The event will take skiers through a beautiful course which includes unparalleled views of Cranberry Pond and Big Tupper Ski Area. The trails are finely groomed by a dedicated volunteer staff and tracks will be set. This is a classic race only; skating is not allowed.
Last year two dozen skiers from as far away as New Jersey took to the course and although the conditions weren’t at their best all agreed the race was fun and enjoyable. This year organizers hope for a larger crowd as the popularity of the trail system continues to grow.
Registration is $10 and begins at 8:45am however you can pre-register. There are four age groups. The Lollipop Loop is for skiers seven and under and is free for participants. Children age 7 to 12 will take to the golf course for a 3-kilometer race. And skiers age 13 and up will have the option of either skiing a 5-kilometer course or 10-kilometer course.
And be sure to stick around afterward for door prizes and hot chocolate.
