Ski to Sea opens registration for 2024

Race day set for May 26, 2024


The legendary Ski to Sea is set for Sunday, May 26, 2024 and registration is officially open.

After celebrating 50 years of the iconic relay race last year, Whatcom Events opened up its registration portal for the 51st edition of the race on January 1. Teams who register before February 28 will save $50 on fees, and team rosters do not need to be finalized in order to register.

Starting at Mt. Baker Ski Area at an elevation of 4,300 feet and finishing at sea level in Marine Park in historic Fairhaven, Ski to Sea is touted as “America’s original team relay race,” and features a daunting seven legs.

  • Leg 1: 4-mile cross-country ski, starting at Mt. Baker Ski Area.
  • Leg 2: 2.5-mile downhill ski/snowboard.
