About This Activity

Kick off your New Year with the REI Frosty Freestyle! Brought to you by Epic Races in partnership with Huron Meadows Metropark and Team Nordic Ski Racer, this cross-country ski race lets you enjoy the natural beauty of Huron Meadows while striding or skating through the scenic parklands towards the finish line. With guaranteed snow — Huron Meadows makes snow for cross-country enthusiasts — and distances ideal for both first-time ski racers and experienced Nordic ski competitors, the REI Frosty Freestyle is a fabulous way to bring wonder to your winter!

Race Events

15K — an exciting mixture of rolling hills, big climbs, long descents, and technical challenges

5K — a cool combination of curves, straightaways, and just enough hills to make it interesting

Fun for the Whole Family!

Be sure to bring the little ones along, as the REI Frosty Freestyle features a kids' race for children ages 5 to 11. This event provides youngsters with the opportunity to test their Nordic skiing skills on an kid-friendly course... and each child receives a custom-designed finisher's medal upon completing the race! All children who participated in the Learn to Ski program are automatically registered for the REI Frosty Freestyle Kids' Race; otherwise, the registration fee is $10 per child, payable at Packet Pick-Up/Race-Weekend Registration. Watch for Frosty the Skiing Snowman! He'll be skiing the kids' race and the 5K, and will be hanging around for photos, too!
