First run in 1973, Ski to Sea is a multi-sport team relay race from the snow of Mt. Baker to the water's edge at Marine Park. Teams comprised of 3-8 racers complete a 93 mile course that includes skiing, running, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking.
A 93 mile relay race of seven venues, a historical hometown parade, and other special events provide a wide variety of entertainment and adventure for all who participate. A team consists of 3-8 racers (2 in the canoe leg) for the seven race legs (Cross Country Ski; Downhill Ski/Snowboard; Running; Road Bike; Canoe; Mountain Bike; Kayak). We recommend a support team to carpool the team to the different race leg venues. From the top of Mt. Baker to Bellingham Bay, discover Whatcom County's recreational playground and the 'Ski to Sea' Experience .
This year Samson Estates will be offering complementary wine tastings as well as two gift certificates as prizes for some of the lucky racers!
