Canberra Cross Country Ski Club

2018 Kosciuszko Tour XC Ski Race – 18th August 2018

The Canberra Cross-Country Ski Club’s 2018 Kosciuszko Tour

All skiers are welcome to participate in the Kosciuszko Tour – from the serious racers to backcountry tourers and those who just want a fun day out touring the beautiful high country.

The 2018 Kosciuszko Tour is on Saturday 18 August. The date of the race is the week before the Kangaroo Hoppet.  This change is to avoid clashing with the New Zealand Merino Muster (which is now held on our ‘old’ date of September).

Location:  Start and finish at the Perisher Nordic Shelter.

Approx distance: 18 km.

Separate Classic and Freestyle categories. Freestyle skiers will start 15 minutes after the Classic skiers.
