2012 Sierra Ski-Orienteering Tour

Training Areas

World Cup and WRE competitors are prohibited from training at Auburn Ski Club, Tahoe Donner Cross Country, and Tahoe Cross Country ski areas until after the World Cup.

Because the World Cup competition will be occurring at about 2000 meters in elevation, we recommend training at that elevation so that you will be acclimated to the elevation.

Places where you can train are any other cross country ski area in the Sierras. Places that we recommend are the following:

For low-cost housing, we recommend sharing a cabin with others or, if you don't mind a 40–50 minute drive, stay in Arnold, CA or Reno, CA. We don't recommend those places during the event because of the long drive when you need to start at a specific time. When training on your own, those places work so long as you don't mind the drive. Also, there is a large resort with shops and restaurants called Boomtown near Reno, about 35 or 40 minutes drive. See our lodgings links for those places.
