Not a competitor? Not a problem. The course is spectator friendly. There will be fire pits, s’mores, and excitement galore, so we hope that you are able to come out and watch these amazing athletes compete. Spectators can even get in out of the cold and watch the action unfold from the upper level of the ski lodge. It’s a great day to bring the family to Mt. McSauba to watch an extreme sporting event and/or partake in some fantastic skiing, sledding, skating, or snowboarding.
