Snekkevik Ski Race

The Snekkevik Ski Race is the second oldest continuing organized ski race in the state.  In 2023, the event was scaled back to a High School and Middle School race only and moved to the golf course due to conditions at Nine Mile. Over 300 youth skiers attended skiing a classic race and was a very successful event. 

Wausau Nordic Ski Club will hold the Snekkevik at Tribute Golf Course on January 6, 2024 on the trail we created last season.

For more info or to volunteer, email snekkevik@wausaunordic.org
