NEW FOR 2017!!! SKI YOUR AGE — A brand new Tour for the Heart challenge for literally all ages of skiers is the option to try and Ski Your Age in total kilometers during the Tour day. Looping around the gentle Tour for the Heart course provides an ideal setting to rack up the kilometers! For those with a Mt Bachelor season pass (or by purchasing a full day trail pass) you can combine the Tour for the Heart loop with the other Mt Bachelor Nordic Center trails. Take as long as you like to Ski Your Age and there’s no set course to follow. Start early and once done you’ll be able to join the main Tour for the Heart finishers for the fun of the post-ski festival area with plenty of refreshments. No special sign-up required, just sign up just like any other Tour participant and we’ll have a special reward and posting board for names and kilometer totals when you are done!
