Bib Reuse Continues

This year we will continue the initiative to reduce waste by collecting bibs at the finish line for reuse next year (after washing them, of course). Skiers have the option to purchase their bib during the registration process. Collected funds will help pay to replace the purchased bibs for the 2025 race.
