Book Across the Bay Event Info
Website:Event Website
Date:February 16, 2019 (Saturday)
City:Ashland, WI
Location:Maslowski Beach on Hwy 2
Notes:Book Across the Bay is the upper Midwest's most unique winter event, open to skiers and snowshoers of all ages and ability levels. The 10-kilometer course, which is groomed for both classic-style and skate skiing, starts in Ashland and ends in Washburn, and follows a route not on land, but over the frozen surface of Lake Superior, the world's largest lake. The event is held at night, and the course is lit by the stars above and up to 1,000 candles in ice luminaries that line the entire route. WE STRONGLY URGE YOU TO PARK YOUR CAR IN WASHBURN, near the finish area at Thompson's West End Park, and catch a shuttle to Ashland before the race. Buses will run from Washburn to Ashland from 1–5 pm prior to the race. We also strongly urge you to take an early shuttle, as traffic conditions, weather conditions, and last-minute bottlenecks may delay the later buses, and may result in your missing the starting gun.

Again: There is always a last-minute rush; if at all possible, arrange to register early and get on an early bus. Please note: There will be no shuttle transportation after the race!

This event has a Facebook page.

Online Registration is available.
