SISU Ski Fest

Thank you for your commitment to the 14th annual SISU Ski Fest, to be held January 7, 2023.

We plan to bring you a premier cross country ski race, with an exciting weekend of activities for your enjoyment. Current plans involve little or no change to the 2022 race course, besides some summer trail work. Racing will again center around our signature 30K SISU, along with the 15K Heikki Lunta. The 5K Fun Ski is there for those who want to participate without racing.

2022 necessitated COVID-19 protocols to protect participants and volunteers. Thus far, the pandemic seems behind us! Still, we ask anyone with symptoms of illness to remain home.

Sisu is a Finnish cultural concept encompassing strength and determination in the face of adversity. It involves a combination of stamina, perseverance, courage, and determination held in reserve for hard times. We honor our local Finnish heritage by borrowing this term as the name of our event, and demonstrate our sisu by training for and participating in these events despite cold temperatures, snow conditions, hilly courses, competitive pressure, and the anxieties of living in these challenging times!
