Utah Cross Country Ski Race Calendar

Dave Hanscom Ski Skating

Below is the schedule for cross country ski races in Utah and vicinity that are popular with local cross country skiers. For more information about cross country ski racing in Utah, check the The Utah Nordic Alliance (TUNA) website, or send email to me at hanscom 'at' cs 'dot' utah 'dot' edu.

The premier Utah events are the five Wasatch Citizens Series races. The series is held at the major cross country ski areas in the Salt Lake vicinity. It consists of two classical technique and three free technique events. There are twenty age groups for each gender, plus recreational/novice classes for both adults and juniors. In addition, there are expert classes for University and US Ski Team skiers and those who enjoy competing with skiers at that level, as well as sit ski classes.
