The racecourse is a 6-ft-wide groomed snow trail that follows the perimeter of Blanca Vista Pond. It is mostly flat with some quick climbs and descents on and off the levy. Portions of the course are wider, allowing for racers to pass. There are also some wood built obstacles that make the course a little more challenging.

Conditions change considerably depending on snow conditions i.e. dirt and mud may exist with warmer temperatures. The course is a short sprint and is done in heats with men's and women's finals. Participants range in skill level from beginner to advanced. All are welcome!
