About This Activity

The Bergkönig is held by locally raised elite nordic ski racers, Bryan Cook and Maria Stuber, in conjunction with the Peak Nordic Ski team. Bryan is a multiple time U.S. National Championships podium finisher, was the top American at the 2011 Birkiebeiner, and has competed for the USA on the FIS World Cup. Maria is a top 5 Birkiebeiner finisher and 2009 U.S. National Championships Silver medalist. Peak Nordic is a Southeastern Wisconsin based, non-profit organization that is working to get local kids competitively involved in cross country skiing. Peak Nordic has programs for Elementary School, Middle School, High School athletes, and their skiers spend most of their time at Lapham Peak State Park. Both Maria and Bryan have been involved with Peak Nordic as athletes and coaches. Some of the proceeds from the event will be deposited into a Bergkönig Scholarship Fund that will assist future generations of Wisconsin Skiers pursuing the Olympic Level after college.
