The bozeman citizens' cup

community nordic
race series

Bozeman, MT

The Bozeman Citizens' Cup is a community Nordic race series hosted by Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF), featuring courses on Bozeman's beautiful trail system.

Races are open to skiers of all ages and levels of fitness and experience. The races will be timed and have some age divisions. But the main purposes are to have fun, celebrate the sport of Nordic skiing, and enjoy our local trails! We'll also have some fabulous raffle prizes and post-race refreshments!

All the Bozeman Citizens' Cup races take place on the trails groomed and maintained by Bridger Ski Foundation's Community Nordic Trails Program.
