FAR WEST RACES
There are only a few races and events that generate all of our income. If you are going to race please attend a fundraiser. The proceeds go to supporting Junior, Senior and Master cross country skiing in the division.
- Tahoe Rim Race & Tour. All proceeds from this race go to the Far West Nordic and Auburn Ski Club Junior Skier programs.
- California Gold/Silver/Bronze Rush. This nationally-famous race draws the best racers from all over the US for the conclusion of the American Ski Marathon Series. This event has 3 distances, 45 Km (Gold Rush), 30 Km (Silver Rush), 15 km. (Bronze Rush). And a great party afterwards!
- Billy Dutton Uphill. Billy was as athlete extraordinary endurance, equally famous for his great smile as he was for his daily (!) routine of skiing UP the Mountain Run on classic skis. As one of the founders of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue, Billy's legacy lives on today. This 3.2 mile Uphill race from the base of Squaw to High Camp commemorates Billy's life and his many contributions to our community. All proceeds from the Billy Dutton Uphill go to benefit Far West Nordic's juniors program.
