MT. WASHINGTON’S ONE OF A KIND WINTER CHALLENGE,
THE “SKI TO THE CLOUDS” RACE
PINKHAM NOTCH, NH—The one of a kind “Ski to the Clouds” race is returning to the snow covered Mt. Washington Auto Road for the 18th year on March 9, 2014 and will once again feature a snowshoe category. This challenging event, thought by many to be North America’s toughest winter 10km race, takes place on the Northeast’s highest peak and includes a climb of more than 2200 vertical feet over the final 6km of the course.
While there will be competitors who are seeking to make or break a record, for others it is the ultimate way to personally test themselves in one of nature’s most spectacular environments. The Ski to the Clouds race is limited to a field of only 150 skiers and snowshoers and these racers will have the Mt. Washington Auto Road to themselves as remarkable views of the Presidential Range and beyond reveal themselves.
There will be a mass start of skiers at 10 am followed by a mass start of snowshoers 10 minutes later on race day.
