THE GREAT STAMPEDE

Posted January 31, 2014 in

The greatest aspects of the winter months revolve around Shanty Creek’s winter wonderland of fun and exciting snowsports activities and events. Tomorrow the 38th annual White Pine Stampede cross country ski race is set to take place and conclude at Shanty Creek’s Summit and Schuss Villages. For the first time in five years, the Stampede features a 50-kilometer distance event; in addition to the 20K and 10K events from previous years. All racers begin their journey in Mancelona and cross the finish line at the Summit (50K and 20K) and Schuss Mountain Village (10K) at Shanty Creek.

For me, the most exciting part of a race is the finish line… Who will come in first?! What will happen as they near the finish line?! The anticipation ends where the celebration begins; at Shanty Creek Resorts.

Good luck, racers! Keep warm and have fun!
