Register now!


Celebrate the original style of Nordic skiing at this year's Old Skool Klassic: the classic or striding technique. Unlike our friends at Far West Nordic, who are tech-savvy enough to use Strava, we’re old skool, which means we’ll accept your time if it's recorded on a Timex start and stop wrist watch. A smartphone. An app like Strava. One bread crumb dropped for every minute you’re skiing. All we ask is that you be honest about your time and stay true to the course.


Dates: January 14-17, 2022
Time: Of your choosing (8:30am-5:00pm)
Where: Tahoe XC Old Skool Klassic Race Course (map provided upon arrival)
Cost: $25 suggested donation supports TCCSEA Youth Programs. In addition to registration, a valid Tahoe XC trail pass is required.
Dress: The more old skool, the better (think woolly knickers)

Registration & Waiver

Register online in advance, and you'll have 4 days to beat your own best time. Please print and sign our English waiver or Spanish waiver, which you will exchange at our outside ticket window for the Race Course Map. The map will only be available in person on the days of the race (Jan 14-17).

Submitting Your Time

To submit your time, you can either write it on parchment and deliver it by carrier pigeon, or email your full name and best time to ski@tahoexc.org.

We encourage you to race this course as many times as you want between January 14th and 17th. Test different hard waxes, try zeros or skins, as conditions permit. Try to beat your own PR. Our only requirement is that you employ Classic (striding) technique and stay on the course outlines on the map.

Choose your strategy well (wax, skis, trail conditions) because this year’s Old Skool Klassic is a true testament to adapting to the times.

Cancelation or Postponement

If for any reason this event is canceled, postponed, or cut short, we will be unable to give money back. Thank you for your donation. Changes to events and operations may occur at any time.
