We are starting the 2017 ski season with a party!

Turkey dinner, live music, advice from elite skiers, some unusual races, ski demos, plus the usual natural snow.

Join us at SilverStar Resort for a wonderful evening of Fine Food, Dancing and a Silent Auction fundraiser for our Biathlon Range Expansion Project.

Starting at SLNC, suit up for a fun adventure over to SilverStar with a couple chocolate stops in between. This will be a mass start “loppet style” event with prizing being distributed throughout your ski… Everyone wins!

Ski the World Cup 5k loop with an elite skier, learning pacing and transition strategies to gain time, while supporting Olympic dreams.

Top active athletes are taking time from their preparation for the NorAm/SuperTour series to lead small groups. Each of these athletes will be racing on this course two weeks later as part of their effort to qualify for Olympic selection.

You can choose between skate or classic technique, World Cup or world masters course, and English or French language for your two hour session.

At least 95% of the money from this event goes directly to these elite athletes to support their dreams. We know that they would not stop at 95% ready, so we are trying to get this up to the 100% they bring to their training.

Come demo the latest in ski technology from Rossignol, Fischer, Madshus, Swix, Atomic and Salomon. Sign up and enter for a chance to win a new pair of skate skis from one of demo sponsors!

Saturday in the Sovereign Lake stadium. Sunday in SilverStar village.

Come experience regional craft breweries while skiing amongst the stars. Four samplers will be provided on this ski adventure with an opportunity to purchase product following the event. Designated drivers will be available to get you back to your accommodations on request for a small donation.
