COVID19 Update: We continue to monitor regulations and recommendations regarding group gatherings during these unprecedented times. We are working with our local permitting agencies as well as following guidance from Summit County Public Health. The health and safety of our race participants, staff, volunteers, and the Frisco community is our top priority. We will have a final decision made regarding the Frisco Brewski on February 12, 2021.
What is BrewSki?
- It is a beer festival on skis at the Frisco Nordic Center.
- Where you throw on a costume.
- Stop at beer tasting tents along the trail to sample beers from 8 Colorado breweries.
- Win prizes for the best costumes.
- End with more beer tastings and music at the after party.
- It’s that easy.
TBD for 2021
Just Say Yes To Beer Tasting & No to Racing
This is not a race, so simmer down, get ready to taste lots of great beer, and oh yeah- dress up in a costume because the glory of skiing in a costume is unparalleled.
Saturday, March 13, 2021
- 2:00pm – 4:00pm skiing and beer tasting
- 4:00pm – 5:00pm after party with more beer tasting and prizes
The skiing portion of the event will take place on the groomed and scenic terrain at the Frisco Nordic Center. The terrain will not be challenging so even a snowboarder can Nordic ski this beer tour… it’s been done.
Heads up- you may be passed by skiers in Lycra who are out for their daily 50k of skiing- don’t let them pressure you into going faster or further. Fun is your only destination.
What Type of Skis Should I Use?
We recommend using Nordic/cross country skis- either classic or skate skis for this event. You may also use AT or telemark equipment with skins if you like your skis a little burlier.
Rental skis for this event will be $10 and available to rent starting at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 13 at the Frisco Nordic Center on a first come, first served basis.
Ski rentals are very limited so please do your best to bring your own skis by renting at your own friendly hometown Nordic ski source.
What Should I Wear?
A chicken costume. A unicorn horn. A wig. A one-piece ski suit. A pug snout. A banana costume. Things made out of spray painted cardboard…
Ok- we really want you to wear a costume, but you should probably wear weather-appropriate, comfortable clothes under that. Tutus over that are totally acceptable too.
Will All This Beer Tasting Benefit Anyone?
Yes! A portion of the proceeds will go to Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, who will be out there helping us judge the costume contest and serving up libations!
What if I Don’t Drink Beer or My Kids Really Want to Ski in in Their Mutant Ninja Turtle Costumes?
No problem. We respect that. Aside from having Colorado beer at the beverage stops, we will also have a non-alcoholic, child friendly options available. Did we mention that kids get a root beer float at the after party?
Can My Dog Ski with Me?
If your dog can ski, we would love to see that sometime, but we’re sorry Commander needs to sit this one out.
Participants who dress up will be eligible to win prizes for best costume, toughest costume to ski in and best team costume.
