2013 Course Maps available now in our Race Guide

The 2013 Great Bear Chase is more than two months away, but organizers have been working hard to finalize the perfect course for this year’s race. Wouldn’t you know it, they’ve figured it out.

This year, with the aid of several GPS tools and decades of experience on the beautiful Swedetown Trails, we’ve carved out the ideal course. The course is naturally highlighted by the Mama Bear and Papa Bear loops that offer the some of the best back-country scenic views a skier could want. Every race will get to run through these loops, which is a first time feature for the Great Bear Chase.

The course will also utilize the stadium start/finish that we added in 2012. The stadium start/finish was received very well by skiers, and we’ve been able to add a bunch more parking that should make the morning of easier for many skiers.

Check out our 2013 Great Bear Chase Race Guide for an overview of the courses, and visit swedetowntrails.org for a better overview of the trail system. Remember, registration is already open!
