2017 Registration is Open!
Snowshoers of all strides, come to Minocqua Winter Park for an exhilarating event, the Moose Tracks Snowshoe Race with 5K and 10K distances. Snowshoes shaped like moose hoofs are not required.
Moose Tracks kicks-off with a mass start at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 8th, 2017. The race course winds through the trails and forests of Minocqua Winter Park. Starting from our chalet, racers will complete one or two laps of a scenic and challenging 5km trail that includes sections of cross-country trails, single-track snowshoe trails, and powder.
Registration for Moose Tracks starts at $30, and increases to $35 per racer on January 1, 2017. In the event of limited snow coverage, Winter Park staff and volunteers will make every reasonable effort to hold the event, either on the official race course or on a viable, alternate route. Read Minocqua Winter Park’s event policies for more information.
The top three overall male and female finishers and the top three male and female finishers in each 10-year age group will receive awards. Overall winners and the first place finishers in each age group will receive laser-engraved wood medallions.
Minocqua Winter Park & Nordic Center is a destination for families and athletes to enjoy a Northwoods winter through silent sports on more than 100km of cross-country ski, snowshoe trails, skijor, and fat tire snow bike trails, with snow tubing and ice skating rounding-off the park’s services.
