Frisco Gold Rush

Saturday, February 13, 2021 CANCELLED


After countless conversations and reviewing numerous scenarios, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Frisco Gold Rush.  If you are looking for some friendly competition at the Frisco Nordic Center, check out the Up & At ‘Em Nordic Series.  This will be a Strava based series, offering ‘racing’ in a different capacity for 2021.  We hope to bring the Frisco Gold Rush back in 2022.  


Join us for the 51st Annual Frisco Gold Rush. Gold Rush is the longest running Nordic event in Colorado, and consists of classic and skate races open to skiers of all ages and abilities. Gold Rush is where the past and present come together to celebrate our historical mining heritage and embrace our snowy Nordic culture.
