Mount Washington Auto Road - Ski, Snowshoe, Fatbike to the Clouds

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham, New Hampshire 

03581


 Long referred to as “North America’s Toughest 10K”, the Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds course has an average grade of 12% over the last 6K as you climb the final 2,200 vertical feet. While there will be competitors who are seeking to make or break a record, for others it is the ultimate way to personally test themselves in one of nature’s most spectacular environments.

 

After covering 4k on the Nordic system, racers will have the Mt. Washington Auto Road to themselves as remarkable views of the Presidential Range and beyond reveal themselves. On race day, there will be a mass start of cross country skiers at 10 am, followed by the snowshoe start at 10:05 am and Fatbikers at 10:10 am. Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds is considered a true freestyle event, there will not be separate classes for classic and skate skiing. This is NOT an event for inexperienced fatbikers, skiers or snowshoers!

Great Glen Trails - Nordic Meisters

1 Mount Washington Auto Road, 

Gorham, New Hampshire 03581


It’s our 24th year! Thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs! The series consists of eight weeks of timed runs with the six best times selected for series-end standings. With an adjustment system, all ages can compete on a level playing field. Check in every week at the rentals desk on the first floor to get your bib number. Start at the timing building in the stadium area between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:45 pm. All participants must check in with the volunteer timing crew prior to starting their timed runs. All runs must be completed by 4:00 pm. Results are emailed and posted on the website Tuesday evening and published in the Conway Daily Sun on Fridays.

Choose between the long (5.3km) or short (2.7km) course in the classic or skate technique—or ski them both.

An awards party/potluck will be held on Friday, March 15 at 5:30pm. The top three skiers in each class will receive an award. All participants completing six out of eight weeks are entered into a prize raffle. (Must be present to win, or have a really good friend willing to pick it up.) You don’t need to be fast to win your share of the prize pool!
