With outstandingly written (thank you, Scott Drum) and beautifully photographed (thank you, Aaron Peterson) stories coming up in the December and January issues of Silent Sports Magazine on ice climbing, for beginners and beyond, contributor Scott Drum has shared this video, the feat absolutely insane, the videography amazing!
In with the old and out with the new! After last year’s pandemic-related changes, we look forward to slinging pasties and handing out awards in person at the Calumet High School gym!
You can now (Link ⇒) head to our website and register for the 10k, 25k, or 50k, either classic or freestyle, or choose the popular 50km skiathlon (25km of both techniques). This year the 50k freestyle and the 25k freestyle and classic races each have multiple corrals, so you will need to estimate your finish time when you register for those events (sorry, yes, there is math involved).
Hats, Pasties, Prizes, and T-shirts
We’re providing each racer with a Swix Great Bear Chase hat, and we will host the ever-popular post-race feast with pasties, soup, bakery, and more. There will be prizes for overall winners, age group winners, door prize raffles, and a new pair of skis for some lucky racer. Check out the full schedule and all the details (Link ⇒) in our race guide. We also have a long-sleeve Great Bear Chase t-shirt for sale ($20) when you register. The design is shown here.
If you are interested in the skiathlon, that field is limited to 115 (based on the size of the transition area).
If you know you want to ski the Great Bear Chase, we suggest:
