Full Moon Fat Bike Race and Ride

Register at Ski Haus or CLICK HERE to register online. $30 entry. For this Race/Ride there will only be one course.. Helmets are required and bike lights strongly recommended.
Last month’s Full Moon Fat Bike Race/Ride was a huge success. Everyone from full-on racers to friends who just wanted to ride together and enjoy the course and weather came out to play. It’s super cool to see the fat bikers spread out over the Lake Catamount Touring Center’s tracks in the moonlight with their bike lights reflecting off the snow.
After the ride everyone meets up at the Lake Catamount Club House Restaurant for a satisfying burger, veggie burger, cold beer, or non alcohol beverage and let the story telling begin!
Let’s hear your Full-Moon-HOWL! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

Event includes a Pleasant Valley Race Ride Tour t-shirt and post race coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts! You’ve earned it!
Open to skate skiing or classic skiing this is the distance race of the season. 2k, 5k, 7k, 14k, and 28k distances. One aid station is set up at the 2nd lap turn. 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! REGISTER HERE.
