RASTA is very pleased to be hosting a virtual location for the Boulder Mountain Tour cross country ski event. We are excited to help racers participate in this event given the impact of Covid-19 on all of our lives this past year.  Established in 1973, the Boulder Mountain Tour is one of the oldest cross-country ski races in the United States.  A treasured winter tradition in the Wood River Valley, the Boulder annually attracts upwards of 1,000 competitors, invigorating the valley’s historic ski culture, its financial health and the lives of our participants.  Visit the BMT website https://bouldermountaintour.com/ for more information and registration information.

The Rhinelander Area Silent Trails Association (RASTA) maintains the Oneida County, Washburn Lake Silent Sports Trails Area cross country ski trails which are located adjacent to Perch Lake Park (trail map available at https://www.co.oneida.wi.us/wp-content/uploads/WashSkiTrailMap.pdf ).  The trailhead has a warming shelter that provides access to 20 miles of cross country ski trails that are groomed for both classic and freestyle techniques.

RASTA has established a 13.5k race course for the Boulder Mountain Tour (BMT) that explores the varied terrain of the Washburn cross country ski trails.  All racers will start from the Perch Lake Shelter and follow a well marked race course that leads skiers out into a undulating course that we are sure all skiers will enjoy. Upon finishing a lap, the racer then completes additional laps to complete their 15k or 30k race.
