Exciting, fun event allowing skiers interested in a shorter event the opportunity to be part of the Birkie experience.
In 2017, Prince Haakon skiers will have a memorable experience skiing 15 kilometers on the beautiful Birkie Trail. Their journey will culminate with a trip up and over the International Bridge, amidst the ringing cowbells and cheering crowds, as they ski toward the finish line in downtown Hayward WI. Now, for the first time, families and friends who have skiers participating in the Birkie, Korte and Prince Haakon have the opportunity to cheer each other on during their respective races. Spectators, too, will enjoy the celebratory, festival-like atmosphere, food, and music in downtown Hayward on Friday, for the Korte and Prince Haakon, and on Saturday for the Birkie. It is a great way to catch Birkie Fever! We hope to see you in 2017!
