10-mile course: The iconic JBTR course features a scenic loop starting near Sypes Canyon trailhead and continuing across private property only accessible on race day.  Great climbs follow as the runners head up Middle Cottonwood after a challenging water crossing, then continue across the Bridgers and down Sypes Canyon.

10-MILE COURSE: 2,838 ft. of elevation gain. View PDF

ABOUT THE BSF PRO TEAM

Proceeds from this event support the nonprofit Bridger Ski Foundation's Nordic Pro Team. Coached by four-time Olympian Andy Newell, this community-supported Olympic development team gives some of the top skiers in the country the support to pursue a professional ski career. This past year, four Pro Team athletes qualified for World Cup races and several ranked at or near the top of the domestic Super Tour standings. One was names to the U.S. Ski Team for next season. Olympic athletes in the U.S. do not receive funding from the government in the way that athletes from Germany, Norway, Sweden, and other countries do. Thus, a few select ski clubs in the states play a crucial role in developing and supporting both up-and-coming and established skiers. The BSF Pro Team is self- funded and depends on the support of sponsors, BSF, and the larger community.
