2010 Sit-Ski Event at the American Birkebeiner

Prior to seeing the first Birkie finishers on Main Street, spectators will again have the opportunity to watch physically challenged athletes use the latest adaptive ski equipment as they ski to the Birkie Finish Line at 9:00 AM on race day.

Later in the day several Sit-Skiers will ski alongside Birkie skiers as they cover the final three kilometers of the course to their finish on Main Street. These athletes will begin on the far end of Lake Hayward at Noon.

Skiers interested in participating in the Sit-Ski events should contact our office at birkie@birkie.com or 715-634-5025.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to try using a Sit-Ski at the ski demo on Thursday and Friday at Telemark Lodge.
