Event Information


Book Across the Bay is a magical, unique cross-country skiing event up North in Ashland/Washburn, WI. It's a 10-km route which goes over the frozen Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior. Also, it's at night, so the course is lit by starlight and candle luminarias! There are bonfire rest areas along the course with food and drink, and a "fire-breathing dragon" often makes an appearance. There are also fun and festivities before and after the race.

Registration is open! It costs $22.50. I'm signed up for the classic ski (Wave 2) but I'll just be bopping along enjoying the night - I'd love to have some company! You can also skate ski, snowshoe or walk if you prefer. 

Lodging will be an (off-the-books) AirBnb plus space for sleeping bags on the floor. We can probably fit up to 12 people. The club has ski and snowshoe gear you can use. We'll probably use personal vehicles (contact me if you have a car!), but could look into Fleet too. Cost for lodging and gas will be around $40. 

For the drive back on Sunday, we'll be passing right by Minocqua Winter Park, which is one of the best cross-country areas in the state. We can see how people feel, but it's an opportunity I would not want to pass up. 

If you register and pay, let me know and I'll move you to the participant list! Any questions?
