This moment. The lake is behind you...the finish line in front of you...definitely the sweetest downhill of the race.

Rounding the final curve near Marketplace Foods and the Birkie office, just one bridge and 300 meters to go...and she's still smiling!

Once a year, frozen Lake Hayward becomes an extension of the American Birkebeiner Trail allowing Birkie week skiers to make their way toward the American Birkebeiner International Bridge and the finish line on Hayward's Main St. What's your fave memory of this point in the race?
