Look for their Bibs!

Dedicated skiers who are competing in their 20th or more American Birkebeiner receive the designation of being a Birchlegger Skier. Hundreds of skiers have already achieved the honor of wearing the purple bib.

Most Birchlegger status skiers become a member of the Birchleggings Club. For information visit their web site at: www.birchleggings.com and their Facebook page.
