The John Day Memorial
Citizen’s Cross Country Ski Race places an emphasis on “Citizen’s”.
Former Olympic team skiers have participated in past races and we expect very competitive skiers. However, no race experience is needed and the wide course and friendly competition has room for all levels
The race course is machine
groomed for skating and track set for classic skiing. The course is relatively
flat with gentle rolling terrain and views if a racer chooses to look up. All race events are held on the same course, with longer events accomplished with more
laps of the 5K loop. The race uses a mass start with classic event skiers just
behind the freestyle skiers.
The 5300 foot elevation
is high enough for good snow with air still “thick” enough for comfortable breathing at race pace.

American Cross Country Skiers (AXCS)
XC skiers interested in performance skiing should consider joining AXCS, the U.S. cross country ski national
membership association for "Masters" skiers. For information, go to:
Citizen skiers and racers of literally
all abilities, interests, and an incredible range of ages all find AXCS membership to be an indispensable part of their annual
ski seasons. You'll discover that we are a fantastic resource for all devotees of groomed skiing even if you never toe the
Of course, if you are a racer (serious, semi-serious, not-serious-at-all-but-like-to-look-good-whenever-possible,
etc.), you simply cannot find a better investment in your skiing. No other national organization exclusively focuses on adult
citizen skiers/racers...your interests, your needs, your community, your life.
