The Nordic Center’s toughest endeavor, the Pine Needle Langlauf freestyle event offers big climbs, scenic views, thrilling descents, excellent snow conditions, and an epic after-party with friends new and old! 

Is Lang not long enough? Only for the super tough, introducing the Langerlauf, 50K.  Yep, down and up Boyce Lake and around the North Loop (may it live forever) five times! May the gods bless you.
