48th Geschmossel Classic Ski Race

Due to the current Nordic conditions, the 2022 Geschmossel Ski race has been cancelled. 

Monday, January 17, 2022

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 classical style Nordic ski race is part of the ZAK Cup Series and takes place on the Ammonoosuc trail network at the Bretton Woods Nordic Center and has grown to attract high-level skiers 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 16, 2022.
