Ski To Sea – SOLD OUT

For the first time since 2011, the Ski to Sea Race is sold out!

If you’ve never been part of this thrilling event, now’s the perfect year to join in.  Apart from being sold out, this year there are participants Alabama, Michigan, and West Virginia joining the fray, leaving only 7 states to achieve full representation from across the nation!

This year is also record-breaking because of the lack of snowpack. Officials are keeping an eye on the conditions, but with the lack of snow, the ski/snowboard legs could be replaced by an alpine run (if no snow) on the mountain or a trail run (if too much snow) in Bellingham and a mountain bike leg on Galbraith Mountain.  As conditions are monitored, a decision will be announced soon!

Nevertheless, this year’s event promises to be one of the largest in its history, drawing visitors and participants from all corners of the country to Whatcom County. Downtown Fairhaven will be a rumble of activity throughout the day, hosting a multi-street celebration featuring live music, a lively beer garden, arts and crafts vendors, and a delectable array of local cuisine. Don’t miss out on the excitement!
