Owl Creek Chase set

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – The Owl Creek Chase, a cross-country ski race held in conjunction with the Aspen Nordic Festival, is slated for Feb. 13.

The 21K race began as a way to showcase trails in the Aspen/Snowmass area, and the Owl Creek Trail features more than 90 kilometers of free skiing.

Started in 1985, the Owl Creek Chase has drawn big names. Bjorn Sateroy of Norway, a former collegiate racer from the University of Colorado, was the first winner of the Owl Creek Chase. Canadian Olympian Pierre Harvey, winner in 1989, is probably the most notable of the early international champions of the Owl Creek Chase. And the Owl Creek has been a coronation for up-and-coming talents Noah Hoffman, Tad Elliott and Matt Gelso, perhaps the three most gifted young distance skiers in the country today.
