Stokely Creek Time Trial registration

Wed, Jan  16, 2008 - By Dieter Hohnke

On Saturday Feb 23, 2008 Stokely will host the 4th Nordic 15K Time Trial.  This is a special opportunity to race on trails that are among the most scenic in the region and even in North America.  The race entry of $25 Canadian includes all day skiing on the Stokely system, the traditional after-race hot lunch (chili, brats, and cake), and entry into the raffle of many prizes.

The race course includes three moderate climbs and one long climb. Classic racers will start first in 30 second intervals followed by free- style. The course is wide enough so that the racers will have ample room to pass. Current conditions at Stokely are excellent with a deep base. Last year’s race took place under near perfect conditions; race marshall Peter Grey and his crew of volunteers had fussed over the course and were ready, as ready as the racers.

Four top prizes {classic/freestyle (male/female)}: one nights lodging, meals, and trail passes.

Last year’s winners were:

Classic

  • Marge Meincke  - 1:13:50
  • Lawrence Foster - 1:00:41

Freestyle

  • Liza Pye - 1:06:37
  • Kerry Abols - 0:48:21

Stokely offers guests (and race winners!) an all inclusive package that includes a healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Guests ski out the door and have wax room on site. Rooms vary in price from the inexpensive ski hut and day skiers lodge to the moderately priced lodge rooms to the more luxurious Peter Calm Chalet. Considering the expense and inconvenience of traveling to restaurants the resort is convenient, relaxing and not as expensive as the one price would suggest.
