RACE DAY!!  Feb 18th, 2018 Course Conditions were some of the best race course conditions we’ve ever seen! Especially on a frozen lake, at night!

“This is the best course we have ever seen, of any race. It’s by far the absolute best conditions in 22 chapters of  BATB.”  -22 year veteran groomer & skier of Book

The 22nd Chapter of BATB hosted absolutely perfect course conditions.  Our large groomer was able to travel the entire course route and the final grooming touches were put on by the Friends of Lake Superior Nordic Trails group Friday evening and early Saturday morning.  3049 participants trekked safely across the Bay and celebrated the journey in style at the finish line in Washburn!
