Dust off your duds and get down to race up the mountain in support of the Mt Shasta Avalanche Center! The race follows a traditional ski-mo (ski mountaineering) format of a timed event that follows an established trail through challenging winter alpine terrain while passing through a series of checkpoints.  Racers climb and descend under their own power using backcountry skiing equipment and techniques.


Prizes will be given for best costume and fastest time in each category. Events to support the Avalanche Center will be going on all day long, with free backcountry ski demos hosted by the Fifth Season, and the 17th Annual Snow Ball with live music and lots of prizes in the evening.
