47th Geschmossel Classic Ski Race

Monday, January 20, 2020

Join us for the 47th Annual Geschmossel Race, which is part of the ZAK Cup Series. Originally staged during the winter of 1972-73, the Geschmossel is one of New England’s oldest citizens’ races. The race originated as a 6-kilometer fun race, and was groomed with a homemade track sled that was pulled by a rope from a grooming machine. Today this 15 km classic Nordic race takes place on the Ammonoosuc trail network at the Bretton Woods Nordic Center and attracts high-level Nordic skiers from around the country, including members of the United States Ski Team.

Please call the Bretton Woods Nordic Center at 603-278-3322 for more information. Online registration deadline is January 19, 2020.
