SNOWMASS VILLAGE – The Snowmass Cross Country Center will host the 42nd annual Silverboom Cross Country Ski Race on Sunday. The event features courses of varying lengths and a kids race.

A 10 a.m. mass start is scheduled for five- 10-, 15- and 20-kilometer freestyle races, open to skiers of all ages and abilities. A one-kilometer Kiddieboom starts at about 11:30 a.m. for youngsters ages 10 and younger. Spectating is encouraged.

The Kiddieboom is free; entry into the freestyle races is $15. Freestyle means both skate and classic technique are permitted, but most competitors choose to skate ski.

Participants can register in advance at either the Snowmass or Aspen cross-country center. Day-of registration is from 9 to 9:45 a.m. at the Snowmass Cross Country Center.

Following the Silverboom – the final race in the Aspen Cup Race Series – an end-of-season barbecue and raffle will take place for series participants.

The six-event series includes competitions at nordic venues throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. Points are awarded in age groups and for overall placing and are tallied throughout the season. Winners receive prizes at the end-of-season party.

The Snowmass Cross Country Center is in Snowmass Village on Clubhouse Drive, off Brush Creek Road.
