The trails for the Pilot Knob Ski race have all been groomed for skating and classic skiing. This includes the road and lake. The lake has some icy spots but is still skiable. The classic tracks on both the lake and road can be anywhere from poor to very good, but skiable. The skating decks all look very good especially on the road.
The race starts at 8:30 am with three different distances, 27 km, 9 km and 4.5 km.
