The Snekkevik Ski Race is the second oldest continuing organized ski race in the state held in January at Nine Mile Forest.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Snekkevik at the Tribute Golf Course. 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. Thanks especially to our volunteers who helped move everything across town to a new venue and to get it set-up and race ready. Complete results can be found by clicking on the button below.
