Viking Snowshoe Invasion

Posted: October 15, 2018

Choose a 5k tromp or a one mile downhill dash!

Join the Vernon Township Board of Recreation on January 26, 2019 at Mountain Creek for this fun-filled snow activity and challenge the best of your winter skills!

Runners, walkers or those trying it for the first time…all are welcome!

Check-in will start at 8:30 a.m. in the Biergarten at Red Tail Lodge, the lift will start bringing participants up to the top of the mountain at 9:00 a.m. and the race will begin at 10:00 a.m.

Ride the cab up to the top of the mountain and then choose to tromp out a 5k or master a 1-mile downhill dash. Either event is sure to keep you warm on even the chilliest of days! Spectators can gather by the outdoor fireplaces and cheer their vikings on as they make their way down the mountain! Plenty of hot cocoa will be on hand for everyone!

The fee is $30.00 if you bring your own snowshoes or $90.00 with snowshoe purchase but hurry…supplies are limited!
