The 5k course of the Bavarian Battle will take place at the Leavenworth Ski Hill along pre-existing trails in cooperation with the US Forest Service. Racers will find more than a dozen obstacles including a tire field, mud “swim” under electric wires, snow “skirmish”
Leavenworth Winter Sports Club has operated the Leavenworth Ski Hill under a special use permit with the United State Forest Service since 1928. Much of the summer the venue is used for hiking, biking and theater performances for The Sound of Music. LWSC wanted to use their beautiful venue to produce a fundraiser, one that would combine recreation and excitement. Last year the Club’s fundraising efforts helped to install a new roof, electrical and plumbing for the Ski Hill Lodge amounting to nearly $50,000. Creating this new outdoor event will help LWSC raise funds for their numerous annual improvements, the free after school ski program and free winter grooming of community trails.
