Snow Cup

Buck Hill

Burnsville, MN


What an amazing day of fun on the slopes! We had an AWESOME time at the 2019 Strider Snow Cup at Buck Hill in Burnsville, MN. We were a little wary of what the weather was going to do, but fortune was on our side. The sun was out, and it was a balmy 20 degrees or so on the slopes. Little Strider riders zipped down the ski run leaving only a flurry of snow dust in their tracks. With almost 100 registered racers, it was definitely the cutest thing to happen over the weekend. We’d like to sincerely thank you for your support, and we hope that you had an amazing time! Seeing all those happy, smiling faces riding their hearts out is just a small part of why we do this. New Strider champions were crowned in the 2-and-under, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old classes. The Strider Snow Cup kicked off our 2019 Strider Racing series. A big THANK YOU goes out to Buck Hill and the City of Burnsville for giving everyone a day of riding, racing, and making new friends!

Don't forget, there are even more Strider Cup Races happening in the coming months! Check out our upcoming events here and get registered for the Strider Cup World Championship in Charlotte, NC October 4th and 5th!
