Wolf Tracks Rendezvous 24 & 42k XC Ski

At Minocqua Winter Park Chalet on February 3, 2024

Race Details

Update: Cancellation of Wolf Tracks Rendezvous 2024

The trails crew went out to inspect the race course, and reported back with disappointing news. Due to the thin snow and predicted warm weather, Minocqua Winter Park is canceling Wolf Tracks Rendezvous 2024.

We are grateful for all the sponsors, volunteers, and skiers who chose to race with us this year and we wish the circumstances were different. Although the conditions cannot support a race, we hope you still consider joining us for a day of fun for skiers and their families. We are planning on-snow activities, games, and challenges and will still provide a meal for skiers and volunteers on Feb 3. Please read the news post for more information.


Minocqua Winter Park’s signature race combines the best trails of the park into a single-loop cross country ski marathon and half-marathon. Choose either skate or classic technique and “ski with the pack” around the epic 42km course or choose the easier 24km route.

This race is an official Birkie/Korte Qualifier!

Route Descriptions

42 km Route

If you’re up for a challenge, this race is for you! The course shares the first 5 km with the 24km folks, but get ready to turn on to some black diamond trails! This course features both Beaver Pond and VO2 Max, which you’ll hit at the front half of the race. There’s plenty of time to recover on the gently rolling namesake trail, Wolf Tracks. But, before you head to the finish line, skiers must first tackle River Run. Then, it’s a hop, skip, and a jump to the finish line!

The 42 km race will have 5 Aid Stations.

24 km Route

This course utilizes strictly easy and intermediate level trails. You’ll get your heart pumping right away as you climb up towards Tornado Alley, Survivor, and Yukon Trail. Once you tackle those hills, you will be rewarded with some nice cruising sections for the remainder of the race including the namesake trail for the race: Wolf Tracks.

The 24 km race will have 3 Aid Stations.

Aid Station Offerings

  • All Aid Stations will offer water, Gatorade, Energy gels, oranges, and bananas.
  • Aid Station 2/3 will offer a wax station.
  • All Aid Stations will offer spare poles.
