Thank you everyone for a great 2018 race!

2014 Glacier Glide

Every year since 1983 in mid-January, Glacier Nordic Club hosts the Glacier Glide Freestyle Race at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course. The race will have a pursuit format that includes both classic and freestyle races for a combined time.  The short pursuit will be a 3.5k classic and 3.5k freestyle race, and the longer pursuit will be a 10k classic and a 15k freestyle race.

The course is over an enjoyable and fast flat-to-rolling terrain. Join us!


  • Cookie Scramble (short out-and back; usually kids aged 3-5 years) and 1k freestyle races.
  • 3.5 k classic and skate races
  • 10k classic
  • 15k skate race

Note:  The Pursuit category combines your times from the 3 +3 or 10+15 races.
