Gold Rush Nordic Races

After countless conversations and reviewing numerous scenarios, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Frisco Gold Rush. We hope to bring the Frisco Gold Rush back in 2022.

51st Annual Frisco Gold Rush

Join us for the 51st Annual Frisco Gold Rush. Gold Rush is the longest running Nordic event in Colorado, and consists of classic and skate races open to skiers of all ages and abilities. Gold Rush is where the past and present come together to celebrate our historical mining heritage and embrace our snowy Nordic culture.


This event was cancelled.
