Join us for an event that gives back! Sierra hosts this cross-country competition to benefit Operation Rebound, an organization that supports veterans, military personnel + first responders. Anyone can compete + help support the cause - Telemark, free heel skiers, split boarders, cross country and back country skiers. Bring your climbing skins and strong legs to raise donations for the USA Adaptive Nordic Ski team. Competitors will compete on a 5 mile course that consists of both downhill and uphill terrain. Those with the three fastest times will receive a cash prize!
