Doggie Dash

February 18 @ 10:00 am - February 18 @ 10:30 pm

Get out your costume box. This race is all about the costume, and a dose of good luck out on the course. Human-dog teams compete in short heats to go for the glory of the coveted Golden Poodle award. Humans must ski. Dogs must run. Dogs must be on a leash. Both must be in costume. It’s that simple. Retractable leashes are not allowed!  Please pre-register for this event.


Spring Creek Ranch loop (by the Ice Rink). Please park above the ice rink and walk down the stairs. ADA parking is available in the lower lot. Parking is often very limited for this event so we encourage carpooling or walking/skiing/biking to the event if you can. Lots of parking available at the Methow Trails property– you can ski down the short, groomed connector trail to the Susie Stephens trail.
