Register now!

Ski the course any day between January 14th and January 16th and record your best time.

Celebrate the original style of Nordic skiing at this year's Old Skool Klassic: the classic or striding technique. We are kickin' it old skool, which means we’ll accept your time if it's recorded on your grandfather's Swiss watch, a wristwatch, a phone, or an app like Strava... Or 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 14-16, 2023
Time: Of your choosing (8:30am-4:00pm)
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 3 days to beat your own best time. Please print and sign our English waiver or Spanish waiver, which you will exchange at the Tahoe XC Front Desk for the Race Course Map. The map will only be available in person on the days of the race (Jan 14-16).

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 16th. 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.

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.
