2022 Event Information Coming Soon!

Registration

Registration for the State Meet will be done using MileSplit, linked through the button below.

Registration Fee: $40 per athletes covers both days.
Deadline: February 7, 2022

The meet is open to non-team affiliated or independent skiers from Wisconsin. We want to encourage the growth of the sport and welcome skiers who may not have a team in their immediate area. Hopefully it will lead to the development of more teams. These skiers can use the team registrations spreadsheet and follow the same submission instructions. Please feel free to contact anyone on the race organization committee for more information on forming a team in your area.   There is a provision for guest skiers for out-of-state teams.   If you are interested in this, please contact john@performancetiming.com for more details.

Standard Athlete Waivers: All athletes are expected to have signed waivers that are in the teams possession. We will not ask you to turn those in at registration, but instead will ask each coach to sign a statement that indicates they have signed waivers from each of their athletes parents or guardians. Both the standard waiver and coach form is provided below.

Course and Stadium Information

The anticipated courses for the 2022 State Meet are posted below. 

The 2022 State meet courses start in the Birkie Stadium. Skiers for both days, Middle School and High School, will enter the course by walking past the Timing/Warming Hut and proceed through to the Start area or tracks headed south towards the Birkie Skate Trail. The race course proceeds from the start up to the left hand turn onto Snowmaker, climbs onto the old Korteloppet trail which climbs up to “The Rock” at 1 kilometer.

Skiers then take a sharp right hand turn and descend on the Birkie Classic trail, reverse of normal flow, and then left onto the Birkie Skate trail. This continues past the 2k mark until it meets with the section of the World Cup Trail that we’ve previously skied in the opposite direction. A hard left at that point takes you 600 meters back to “The Rock” and just past the 3k marker.

A right hand turn at The Rock takes you onto the Birkie Classic Trail, reverse direction from what we’ve skied past years. This continues back to the Birkie Skate Trail for a very brief section before another left hand turn feeds skiers onto The Birkie Roller at around the 4K mark.

This trail will essentially lead us past 5 and 6 kilometers coming into the final downhill and approach to the stadium and finish, 6.50 kilometers. Skiers will enter the stadium by going over the tunnel, a swooping right hand turn, and another gentle left hand turn to lead them on to the finish straight away as we have in the past.

Warmups will be conducted on the Birkie Skate Trail behind the finish area and extend to where the Birkie Classic and Skate trails separate. Also groomed and open for testing and warmups will be the trails to the east of the Great Hall, climbing up to Telemark Condo Rd.

Middle School Course Description
The Middle School course and high school course are the same up to “The Rock”. At that point MS will turn left for a short way and then a right for about 400m to the high point on the course for them. A sharp left will take them onto the Birkie Roller, part of the high school course where they will ski for the remainder of their course entering the finish stadium as the high school course described for 3k total.


Wax Facilities/Restrictions

Only fluoro-free waxes are permitted. We intend to use the CXC Cup Wax Policy for the event.
