After you have completed training, select one of three census zones. Each zone is comprised of three challenge levels.
Red zones are the most difficult due to distance or vertical climb. Red zones may be as long as 10 miles and best censused on XC skis; other red zones are only 2-5 of miles long but may require a steeper ascent. Red zone teams begin at 9:00 AM. You should be in good to excellent shape if your team chooses red zone.
Green zones are 1 to 5 miles long and may have brushy terrian, steep slopes or a long hike/snowshoe. You should be in moderate to good physical condition to attempt a green zone. Green teams begin at 10:00AM. You should be in moderate to good shape for a green zone.
Blue zones are the easiest and are less than 2 miles long. We have several blue zones that will be censused. Blue teams begin at 11:00 AM. Most people can census a blue zone.
All teams must report to their base camp by 4:00PM Saturday!
Expect to see wildlife on each zone type! As always, please keep updated on the current weather!
