What's the coolest thing to happen to Northern Michigan in... well a long time?! The Sno-Go Hot Cocoa Hustle Relay Race, happening on Saturday, January 22. It's time to start gathering your team for this fun relay race! The best part? Not everyone on your team needs to be a skier! With different legs of the race that include carrying a tray of mock hot chocolate, your team will be laughing, skiing, and sprinting to the final leg of the race - which features riding an all new Sno-Go bike down the hill! Your team will compete for awesome prizes valued at $2k, including a brand new Sno-Go bike!

Do you think your team of four has what it takes to make it to the bottom without spilling a drop?! Step up to take on the Sno-Go Hot Cocoa Hustle on Highlands Anniversary Weekend.

    On-Site Registration & Check-in:   In the event you cannot register in advance, there will be a table setup for registration the day of the event, from 11am until race time outside in the Hot Cocoa Race Lounge located behind the Zoo Bar. All teams are to check-in before 2pm to get team bibs and batons.

    *The designated Sno-Go bike rider on your relay race team will need to attend an approximately one hour training session prior to the start of the race at 12pm to learn how to operate the Sno-Go bike safely and properly. 

  • Making your way down the mountain has never been so challenging for you and your teammates! Starting at the top of Leprechaun, you will get a sprinting start to your skis. Once you've clipped it in, it's time to gather your team's relay baton so to speak - your tray of mock hot cocoa. This will be your ticket to the end of the finish line as you pass it from teammate to teammate. Once you have your tray gathered, you will need to safely escort your tray of hot cocoa to the next person on your team to conquer the Nastar course portion of the race. Once the wobbly weave through Nastar has been completed, the final two legs will be taken on by the non-skiers of the group, the spill-y slalom sprint, and lastly the banked tube slide on a Sno-Go bike while your tray of hot cocoa is placed in your waiting backpack for easy traversing.

    This is a relay race that consists of teams of four. The four legs of the race include:

    1. Skier or Boarder: Skiing or boarding from Leprechaun to Nastar
    2. Skier or Boarder: Skiing or boarding through the Nastar course
    3. Runner: Running from the bottom of Nastar to the top of the banked turns area
    4. Sno-Go Bike Rider: Riding a Sno-Go bike through the banked turns area to the finish line*

    *The designated Sno-Go bike rider on your relay race team will need to attend an approximately one hour training session prior to the start of the race at 12pm to learn how to operate the Sno-Go bike safely and properly.
