Welch Village High School Invitational Ski Race

The Longest Running High School Ski Race in the United States!

Welch, MN - The 37th Annual Welch Village Invitational Ski Race will take place at Welch Village Ski and Snowboard ResortWelch Village Ski and Snowboard Resort on Friday, January 20th.

“This event with all the tents, campfires, great food and great race hills is the highlight of the season and must race to attend for most high school race teams in the area” according to Welch Village Race Director Ann Kulla. This year’s race is sponsored by the Hastings, Northfield and Rochester ski teams. This event features high school teams from across the state including schools like Cretin-Durham Hall, Hill Murray, Hastings, Richfield, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Wayzata, Woodbury, Northfield, Rochester and more. Even with budget cuts and many schools across the state the Welch Village Invitational is still a top priority for a lot of schools with ski teams.

Despite a lack of natural snow and warm early winter, Welch Village and other local ski areas still report a large base of snow for all ski and snowboard enthusiasts. This large base of man-made snow has made it possible for all high school ski teams to have training venues to prepare for races like the Welch event.
