Coming up this weekend is the Tahoe Rim Tour, a classic and skate Nordic ski race from Tahoe City to Northstar and included in that is number 2 of 3 of the Northstar Snowshoe Social and Race Series. The race begins at North Tahoe High School and I believe follows quite a bit of the Great Ski Race course point to point to Northstar. From Northstarattahoe.com:
Far West Nordic Ski Association and Northstar at Tahoe are proud to present the 4th annual Tour Rim Tour & Race, a point-to-point 26km race from North Tahoe High School in Tahoe City to the Northstar at Tahoe Cross-Country Ski, Telemark & Snowshoe Center. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit the Far West Junior Nordic Program. The snowshoe division will qualify participants for the overall Northstar series crown.
Seems like a great opportunity to challenge yourself or see a different part of the forest as you trek from Tahoe City to Northstar. Following the race lunch, raffle, and awards ceremony.
