Langlauf President's Welcome

Welcome to the 43rd Langlauf,
Wow I can't believe this will be the 43rd Langlauf. We Hope you will come up and "XC ski in 24" help us celebrate 43 years of skiing over the hills.

 Once again, this year we are offering an adaptive skier category. If you are visually impaired or a sit skier you will be able to participate in our Wave start, but at junction 1 will continue on Linder Road to a turnaround at the Inland gate then back to Brian's and our traditional finish line. Adaptive skiers must register but their guide skier can accompany them for no cost. Guides will need to sign a waiver the morning of the race and do not need to pay to register unless they want to be timed. Guides will be considered a volunteer and be entered in the prize drawing.

 We are also continuing our tradition of 10 or younger participants register for free with a paid adult registration. Make sure and tell all your friends!

 For the rest of our participants the race follows our now traditional 10 k course around the Nordic Trails at Mount Spokane State Park. Maps are posted in Selkirk Lodge and on our website. Get there early and you can have the wax pros from Fitness Fanatics apply the wax of the day for free to your skis.

 As in the past we will be starting at 10:00 with wave starts for each group.

 Langlauf is a 501 3c nonprofit. Proceeds generated by the race are redirected back to the Nordic ski community in the form of scholarships to the Junior Racing and Adaptive skiing programs or trail improvements like the Tripp's Knob Warming Hut and the purchase of the new snowmobile. This year we bought a new brush cutter for trail maintenance. With this in mind we encourage you and your families to support the businesses that support us. Most of our sponsors have participated for years. As a result of their sponsorship, we will be giving away close to $6000 of prizes based on a random drawing of bib #. Thanks again to our wonderful sponsors and to you for participating.

 There are several other races throughout the winter thanks to the efforts of the Nordic club. More information on them can be obtained on the Nordic club website at You will also find a link to a web cam and the weather station on Quartz Peak and at the fitness Fanatics trailer (a great site to use for pre waxing and clothing selection) as well as grooming conditions.
