To Benefit the New England Ski Museum
The Bretton Woods Nordic Center at the Omni Mount Washington Resort is home to classic Nordic skiing events such as the Mount Washington Cup and the Geschmossel, the longest running citizen’s Nordic race in New Hampshire. This year we invite all Nordic skiers to participate in the Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon ... come be part of this epic, classic-format Nordic ski event that benefits the New England Ski Museum.
Staged between the historic Mount Washington Hotel and majestic Mount Washington, the New England Ski Museum’s Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Omni Mount Washington Resort has quickly become a North Country winter tradition. This 42-kilometer, classic-format, cross-country ski race showcases one of the largest Nordic systems in the northeast. In the tracks of the famed 1982 US National Championships and such legends as Bill Koch and Tim Caldwell, this race is steeped in history and Nordic skiing tradition. The course layout provides a challenge to experienced racers while making use of terrain that is accessible and enjoyable for skiers of all abilities.
Past winners include Olympians Justin Freeman (2010, 2011) and Dorcas Wonsavge (2009, 2010) and top collegiate racers. Participants range in age from 11 to 83; with a two lap course and rest stations. The Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon is a great event for recreational and competitive skiers alike; there is also an option to ski on an untimed basis. The Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon is part of two different New England Nordic Ski Association race series; the 42K marathon is part of the Marathon Series and the 21K half-marathon is part of the ZAK Cup.
