The Wisconsin Nordic Ski League Distance Meet will be different this year. Due to the low snow conditions and the need to move the State Meet to the first weekend in March, the competition will now be combined with the final Great Lakes JNQ event and Youth Cup Championships that were originally scheduled to be in Rhinelander and Minocqua.


Individuals who want to be considered in the JNQ or Youth Cup events will need to sign up through their websites. Links are provided further down the page. For individuals competing in only the WNSL State Distance Championships will utilize MileSplit for registrations and will be mostly handled by team coaches. How you sign-up will determine how much you will pay and what set of results you will be included on. We hope to have this information updated by late Tuesday, February 13.

Skiers who are eligible for both JNQ and HS results will be included in both results. The same applies for MS skiers who register for the Youth Cup.

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

Registration Fee: $25 per day. $50 for the weekend. JNQ and Youth Cup fees are different. A skier who skies in both the JNQ or Youth Cup and State Distance Meet only need to sign-up once and will only be charged once.

Deadline: Registration Closed

Updated 5:00pm, Wednesday Feb 29: All registrations are now available to view. The HS/MS list contains all entries submitted by teams via MileSplit. The JNQ/Youth Cup list has all skiers who registered individually through the CXC registration site. Please report any issues to john@performancetiming.com.

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.


Schedules are preliminary and will be established firmly based on number of participants in each event and other factors as we approach race day. The order of events should remain the same barring unforeseen circumstances. Make sure to check back on race week to see a final schedule.

>>Please be sure to access the venue via Telemark Rd and not McNaught.

>> Spectator Parking will be east of the Great Hall or in the Telemark lots. It is highly recommended that you park in the Telemark lots and walk down to the course as the road into the race area is anticipated to be very soft and muddy.

Wax Facilities/Restrictions

The waxing protocol for this year’s meet will follow the JNQ waxing rules which allows any non-flouro wax. The requiment to use Swix waxes will be waived for this year. There will be no indoor waxing space at the venue. If interested in getting access to power outside, email Jim Sokup | jim.sokup@birkie.com. Teams should bring their own power source if they have one.
