Fat Bike and Nordic Ski Series

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Pleasant Valley Race Ride Tour Series presented by Lake Catamount Touring Center and Ski Haus.

Lake Catamount and Ski Haus are combining Fat Bikes and Skinny Skis into a 4 event series with the emphasis on fun and participation… not just race results. We have the lowest entry fees and we always include lots of added value with t-shirts, tasty burgers, cold beers, fresh donuts, hot coffee, and hot chocolate. We have our fingers crossed that you find all of this too much fun to resist and come out and join the fun!

All events will be held at the Lake Catamount Touring Center. Here is a quick list of dates with a brief description. Kids 12 years old and younger participate for free.

To register online CLICK HERE. You can also register at Ski Haus or at the Outfitter Cabin at the Lake Catamount Touring Center.

Ski Haus Classic Nordic Race – Sunday January 21, 2018 . 10am start
Don’t bring your skate skis to this event. Classic only! Multiple courses available, 2k, 5k, 7k, 14k distances. From the tiniest of skiers to some old-timers who can still stride out pretty darn fast to some very fit racers – you’ll see ’em all the Classic event. This race has been a highlight each winter for a number of years. Come join the fun. Enter to race, enter to leisurely tour the course with friends, or enter to just show support for the oldest and most beautiful of skiing styles. All are welcome!

Full Moon Fat Bike Race and Ride – Wednesday, January 31, 2018 . 6pm start. $25 includes burgers, beers, or non-alcoholic beverage. Last year’s Full Moon Race/Rides were a huge success. Everyone from full-on racers to friends who just wanted to ride together to enjoy the moonlight scenery came out to play. It is super cool to see the fat bikers spread out over the Lake Catamount Touring Center’s tracks in the moonlight with their flashing bike lights reflecting off the snow. Post ride everyone meets up at the Catamount Club House Restaurant for a satisfying burger, cold beer (or non alcohol beverage) and let the story telling begin!

Lake Catamount Nordic Marathon – Sunday February 18, 2018 . 10am start
Open to skate skiing or classic skiing this is the distance race of the season. 2k, 5k, 7k, 14k, and 28k distances. This is a great race to set your sights on. Skiing up to 28k and finishing while feeling good is a worthy goal for anyone! Not quite up to the long distance ski? Come on out and have fun with any of the other distances. The track at Lake Catamount is really one of the best you will ever ski and the views of the Yampa Valley are spectacular.

Come out and howl at the moon with your best buddies!

We hope you find the Pleasant Valley Race Ride Tour too fun and too exciting to pass up. Enter one or all events and we sincerely hope to see you at Lake Catamount Tour Center. Help spread the word and see you out there!
