Race Information

Missoula Nordic Ski Club will hold a XC classic race followed by a XC skate race at Lolo Pass, and participants are welcome to enter one or both races. 

  • 9 AM Mountain Standard Time / 8 AM Pacific Standard Time: ~10 km classic race
  • 11:30 AM Mountain Standard Time / 10:30 AM Pacific Standard Time : ~10 km skate race

To Lolo Pass from Lolo Hot Springs
7:45 AM, 10 AM

To Lolo Hot Springs from Lolo Pass

Both races will use interval (individual) start rather than mass start.  The skate race will be pursuit style: the start order will be determined by the finish order of the classic race, with the winner of the classic race taking off first in the skate race. 

Start: Races will start at the old Forest Service buildings just down the trail from the Lolo Pass visitor center.  

Registration: Online on at and on race day at the warming hut at the Lolo Pass. 

Refreshments and Ceremony: Missoula Nordic will provide some basic food and beverages at the race start and finish area, and host an award ceremony and gathering at Lolo Hot Springs after the races are finished. 

Parking Shuttle: In an effort to keep parking available to other users at Lolo Pass, bus shuttle service will be provided, running from Lolo Hot Springs up to the pass before each race, and back to Lolo Hot Springs after the races.   Skiers are encouraged to use the shuttle. 

Volunteers Needed: We need volunteers for the following positions:

  • Parking lot attendant for first bus up from Lolo Hot Springs to Pass (30 minutes of time, tops)
  • Race registration / check-in / bib distribution (2-3 people)
  • Feed station at start / finish area (1-2 people)
  • Race starter (1 person, or 1 for each race)
  • Race timers (2 people)
  • Race cleanup (the more the merrier) - packing up course markers, tables, food, etc.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email Tim at
