Ski Bowl Citizens Races
WHAT IT IS:
A community race series at the North Creek Ski Bowl- come for one week, or join all of them! All races are held on our professionally groomed stadium course under the lights! Start 2020 with some extra fun and fitness. The Citizens Races end up becoming a bit of a club- you'll be making some new friends and adding to your on-snow time each week! A special thanks to our sponsors Basil & Wick's, barVino, becks TAVERN, and Cobble Creek Farm for contributing gift certificates, locally crafted goods, and other prizes to the upcoming races!

RESULTS & PRIZES:
Raffle Drawing- Each week, everyone who races is entered into a drawing for fun prizes including gift certificates from our generous sponsors, cold-weather gear and accessories, locally crafted goodies, and more!
We will keep your time recorded each week you participate, but this is just for you to keep track of your own progress! Every week you show up, you earn an extra "chance" into the grand raffle happening February 18 (you must be present to win).
Participants who join all races will be in the running for a "Best Turnout" prize, also awarded raffle-style on February 18.
