About The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation:
The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated, as reflected in the Birkie Mission Statement, to hosting one of the world's best cross country ski events, the American Birkebeiner, maintaining one of the nation's premier recreation trails, and promoting healthy lifestyles for people of all ages. The American Birkebeiner is made up of several events in addition to the 50K and 54K Birkie marathon races and the 23K Kortelopet race (the second largest ski race in North America). Over the years many thousands of people, both elite and "Citizen Skiers," have enjoyed the thrill of personal triumph crossing the finish line of the Birkie and earning their prestigious award medallions. Promotion of cross country skiing and protection and maintenance of the American Birkebeiner Trail are two primary goals. Each year the Young Skier Fund awards thousands of dollars in grants to youth skiing organizations throughout the region and nation to foster young people making skiing part of their life.
