Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon

Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Omni Mount Washington Resort to Benefit the New England Ski Museum

Thank you for supporting the New England Ski Museum by entering the Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon.  We regret to inform you that the 2016 Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon will not take place.  This is not a decision we came to quickly but current conditions, a convergence of forecasts and the season’s weather trends make it the only reasonable decision to make at this time.  It’s hard to balance waiting ‘til the last minute with giving you the time to make alternate plans.

We hope this anomalous season doesn’t diminish your future interest in this event and that we see you here next year and for many years to come.

Although the event is listed as having ‘no refunds’ the New England Ski Museum and Bretton Woods Nordic Center hope you will take us up on an offer to forward your entry to next year and accept a complimentary ski ticket (valid through the end of March 2017).  You will obviously be part of the first 100 entrants and while we have not confirmed a “first 100 entrant gift” for next year we almost always have one and you’ll be part of that group. Your ticket will be mailed to you from the New England Ski Museum.  Alternatively we are willing to refund your entry fee.

Thank you and best of luck in your future events!

At the site of the famed 1982 US National Championships where Nordic legends such as Bill Koch and Tim Caldwell competed, the Bretton Woods Nordic Center of Omni Mount Washington Resort invites all long distance classic skiers to join them on an epic journey to benefit the New England Ski Museum.

Staged between the historic Mount Washington Hotel, Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, the New England Ski Museum’s Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Mount Washington Resort has become a memorable North Country winter occasion, steeped in history and Nordic skiing tradition. Held in early March each year since 2009, the classic format, cross-country ski race in half marathon and marathon distances showcases one of the largest Nordic systems in the northeast.

Recent past winners include Olympians Justin Freeman (2010, 2011) and Dorcas Wonsavage (2009, 2010) and top collegiate racers. Participants range in age from 11 to 75; and may enter either the timed or untimed divisions of the one or two lap course. The scenic course in the shadow of the Northeast’s highest peak has frequent feed stations, and participants partake of a post-race meal within the grandeur of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel. This is a truly great event for recreational and competitive skiers alike.
