Go for Gold at the Yellowstone Rendezvous Race

Wed, Feb  3, 2010 - By Sara Hoovler

All eyes will be on Vancouver for the next month.  We will follow every win, loss, crash, highlight, side story, back story and more.  Skiers, skaters, sliders, and couch potatoes will be glued to the TV, radio, internet, and twitter.  Last night’s record breakers, ice princesses, and dramatic winners will be the talk of the day.  By the end of February, as the closing ceremonies wrap up the Olympics, we will be left yearning for the roar of the crowds and gold medals.

You will find it all in West Yellowstone on March 6th, 2010.  Ride the Olympic high all the way to the Rendezvous Ski Trails for the 31st annual Yellowstone Rendezvous Race. The boom of a cannon, the clatter from the crowd, and the festive volunteers will send you off on this legendary marathon race.  Trade strides with skiers from across the globe and take in the awe-inspiring views from the track. As a sanctioned event in the American Ski Marathon Series, racers will enjoy a competitive course designed for skiers of all ages and abilities.  Cross the finish line and relax- you made it!  Whether you came in first, last, or somewhere in between, you do not want to miss the awards ceremony held on Saturday evening.  Over 100 gold, silver, and bronze medals are presented and the real treat is not the dessert bar, but the swift and satisfying ceremony.

West Yellowstone offers the unique chance to hold your race weekend in a true Winter Wonderland.  We are snuggled between America’s first national park and acres of national forest land.  The outdoor enthusiast will find snow heaven here!  Ski, snowshoe, snowmobile, or enjoy a snowcoach tour of Yellowstone.  Explore the hundreds of miles of trails around.  Or simply spend time with the family on the free ice-skating rink or local sledding hill.
