This is set to be the inaugural event in one of the most legendary sledding towns on the planet and it should be a heck of a good time. The location alone should guarantee a high quality field and the amenities at the the race venue will be excellent.
“The RMR course brings a lot to the table,” said race organizer Tyler Collet. “Top notch accommodations, great dining options and a course that should bring a fun level of difficulty for all experience levels will make it great for competitors and riders alike.”
“We’re excited and honored to co-host this event with the WCHA,” said RMR’s Marketing Manager Nico Leenders. “We love the idea of merging snow cultures and hopefully we can turn this event into something that sledders put on their calendar every year.”
