Skiers are responsible for getting bags to the bag drop area near the starting line of your event and trucks will bring them to the ‘Finnish’ line. Please use bags that can be closed securely to prevent snow from getting in and the contents from falling out. Race officials are not responsible for any lost or stolen property. Make sure your BIB Number is on tag and securely attached to your bag. Bags may be claimed at Main St Fitness across the street from the ‘Finnish’ Line, where you may change your clothes, take a shower and use the sauna. Changing facilities are also located at ABR Trails and showers are also available in the lower level of the Memorial Building.
