Save money by signing up early for Boulder Tour

32k field limited to 800

It's only three months away, so you might think about signing up early for the 2012 Boulder Mountain Ski Tour and guarantee your spot—while saving money in the process.

The 2012 Boulder Mountain Tour cross-country ski event is set for Saturday, Feb. 4 in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area north of Ketchum.

Adult entry fee for the 32-kilometer (19.8-mile) Full Boulder Tour is $75 per person if paid by Dec. 14. The price rises to $85 if paid from Dec. 15-Jan. 18, and jumps to $100 per person from Jan. 19 through the final deadline of Tuesday, Jan. 31.

The 32k race is limited to the first 800 paid participants who are registered. There are no refunds on registration for any reason. Should you wish to sell your entry because for some reason you can't participate after signing up, you can post it in the "Sell/Buy Forum" on the website.

< registration is only available for Full Boulder signups.

The cost is much less for young skiers. Full Boulder Tour cost for ages 17-and-under on any date is $42.

Becoming more popular since introduced by race organizer Kevin Swigert several years ago is the Half Boulder Tour on a 15k (9.3-mile) course along the same Harriman Trail historic trail. Cost is $63 adults and $33 for 17-and-under, on any date.

Deadlines for registration are less restrictive on the Half Boulder. In addition, Half Boulder registration is only available by using the mail-in form available on the Tour's website and sending a check or money order to BMT, Box 173, Sun Valley, ID 83340.
