Baxter Outdoors continues the Packed Powder Series with a stop at Lost Valley Ski Area in Auburn, Maine and part of the Auburn Winter Fest. This classic local ski hill with over 10km of cross country ski trails will play host as we snowshoe and nordic ski our way through the woods of central Maine.
The race can be tackled as a solo 5km snowshoe, solo 10km duathlon, or team 10km duathlon. We will also offer a 3-lap and 5-lap ski mountaineering course. The 5km snowshoe course will take place on single track trails throughout the woods. The nordic course will be set on the Auburn Nordic Ski Association trails behind Lost Valley Ski Area.
XC Skiers will race first at 10:00am. Duathlon teams will transition directly into their snowshoe leg. Solo snowshoers will begin at 10:05am
