The Center and Therapeutic Associates present the annual Tour for the Heart — a fun 5km XC ski or snowshoe tour to raise awareness and research funds for battling women’s heart disease. The Tour for the Heart covers a beautiful and gentle Oregon Cascades 5km route suitable for participants of all ages and abilities (and yes, men & boys of all ages are very welcome to join us!). The Tour is a big party on snow for all ages and abilities featuring music, yummy treats, and costumes are encouraged, with prizes for the most creative ensembles. Recruit your friends, coworkers and family to sign up for the Group Challenge to enjoy for a great day on the snow and qualify for extra special group gift surprises! Looping around the gentle Tour for the Heart course provides an ideal setting to rack up the minutes or kilometers! For those with a Mt Bachelor season pass (or by purchasing a full day trail pass) you can combine the Tour for the Heart loop with the other Mt Bachelor Nordic Center trails. Take as long as you like to Ski Your Age and there’s no set course to follow. Start early and once done you’ll be able to join the main Tour for the Heart finishers for the fun of the post-ski festival area with plenty of refreshments.
