The final race is on February 9 at Steamboat Lake. For those with the energy there is a 5k and those wanting a little less fresh air a 3k. It is $25 dollars for each race until the day of and then it will cost $40 dollars to register. “The races are designed to be family-friendly and more recreationally-oriented,” says organizer Mike Mathisen. “These are to be fun races and encourage people to snowshoe and get out in the mountains and parks.”
