Year three of the Big Sky Cup is shaping up to be a great one!

We are continuing to coordinate a statewide points series that promotes the historically awesome skimo races that exist across the state of Montana.  The goal of the Big Sky Cup is to continue to support and grow the skimo community across the state through sponsorship from local MT businesses as well as outdoor gear companies.  And in the end, we crown the MT state skimo champs!

How does this work?

Everyone who signs up and races for any of the above races will be automatically included in the Big Sky Skimo Cup points series.  To be eligible for end of series prizes and the title of Big Sky Cup Champ, you must race in at last 2 of the races.  We encourage you to race in all of them but don’t worry if you can’t make it, only your top 3 scores will be counted towards points. Check out the website throughout the season for up-to-date overall standings.  The points series will be managed by Muddy Dog Sports.
