Be a part of the tradition! Join us for the 33rd Seeley Hills Classic!

The Seeley Hills Classic, started in 1992, is the second-largest annual classic cross-country ski event on the Birkebeiner Trail. The 42K race is an American Birkebeiner qualifying race.

Steeped in history and local ties, the race has served as a major fundraiser for the Seeley Ski Club, allowing it to promote skiing in a number of ways. The club was responsible for lighting the Birkie Trail at the Highway OO area, and developed the Sawyer County Ski Trail in the Seeley area, which it still maintains and grooms. Today, with the help of the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation, the Seeley Hills Classic legacy will continue to keep skiing strong in the Seeley area.
