We are in the midst of a multi-day snowstorm, with significant snowfall still ahead of us. And that makes it interesting for this Sunday's Owl Creek Chase. The Owl Creek Chase is one of Colorado's largest premiere cross-country ski races and has been presented since 1985. The race course begins at the Snowmass Nordic Center and runs to the Aspen Nordic Center - offering tough climbs, scenic views, thrilling descents, and especially this year, excellent snow conditions.
There will be three different races this year: a classic 21K race, a 21K skate race and a 15K Tour. Participants can sign up through today or on race day. For information on shuttles and race day, visit owlcreekchase.com.
