Get those snowshoes ready! The 2019 Jackrabbit Snowshoe Race Series lands at Kissing Bridge North area in Glenwood promising heart pounding snow-packed racing action on Monday nights. On a weekly basis entrants can compete on the short (usually 1-mile/lap) or long (2-mile) courses. Courses are typically hardpack groomed with resort equipment and utilize the base area near the North Lodge featuring a few short climbs & descents. Snow conditions determine the courses and there could be powder nights as well. Entrants do not summit the mountain but the courses are not flat. Headlights encouraged since certain sections are darker than others however resort lights are on. Snowshoeing under the lights!!!
Run, walk, as long as you're in snowshoes you're in.
