On Saturday January 25th  2014 the Ranch will be hosting an exciting new winter event—a 30km/15km classic cross country ski race and15km tour from Devil’s Thumb Ranch property through the old Idlewild Ski Area and finishing at Hide Away Park  in Winter Park.

 

The race is significant because it ties into the ski history of the area—in the past the Idlewild trail system connected to Devil’s Thumb Ranch, connecting Tabernash, Fraser, and Winter Park, and is still remembered by skiers as one of the best Nordic areas in Colorado.

 

We expect to draw serious Nordic skiers and racers and classic old-school purists because it’s a unique event—a point-to-point, classic-technique race only. It’s a rare chance to ski such a beautiful, “off the map” course. Plus: It’s an exclusive opportunity, as this will be the only time this winter that this trail system will be connected and groomed for skier access.

 

In addition a portion of the race and tour proceeds will go toward the Trout Unlimited campaign to protect and preserve the Fraser
