Casper Mountain to Host Cold Avenger Triathlon Saturday
The first annual Cold Avenger Winter Triathlon is happening Saturday, February 7th, beginning at 8am with a 5K snowshoe among other events.
Everything you need to know to compete and take in the beauty of Casper Mountain is listed below.
This 3 event race of 5k snowshoe - 5k nordic ski - 5k Fatbike will take you around some of the most beautiful trails on Casper Mountain. Dense forest and perfectly groomed trails will have you forgetting about the cold in no time. If your nose does feel the sting of winter, visit the Cold Avenger sponsor booth for great gear, then enjoy the comforts of the Casper Mountain Nordic Ski Lodge to warm up with hot cocoa and a full menu of food. At 8am the Triathlon will start with the 5k snowshoe. Your shoes will take you out on some wide trails for passing but will mostly keep you in the fun and twisted back country trails. Snowshoe will be one large 5k loop and bring you back to the lodge to transition to the ski portion. Again, one large loop on amazing cross country ski trails that are groomed to perfection. Loop around for the final transition at the nordic lodge and jump on that Fatbike of yours. The 5k Fatbike portion will be on mostly single track but will have places for passing. Don't have a Fatbike? Many shops around Wyoming rent them and have bikes for demo. Reserve yours today!!

11am will be a 5k cross country ski race
