Jr. Ski to Sea

The Jr. Ski to Sea has been a beloved community event since its inception in the 1980’s. After a 3-year hiatus, Whatcom Events assumed ownership of the race and reinvented the course to mimic the Big Race. 

The Jr. Ski to Sea Race is a youth (Grades 3 – 12) relay race that consists of skiing or snowboarding, running, mountain biking, and kayaking. The first leg will commence at the Heather Meadows Base area at Mt. Baker Ski Area with a virtual handoff to the remaining three legs at Lake Padden.

Starts: May 13, 2023

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
