Registration Deadlines: Early – closes Dec. 9 at midnight;
Regular – closes Jan. 27 at midnight;

All entries after Jan. 29 must register in person on day of race at the “Late” rate.
Registration and payment for the 2024 ESG Ski-O must be done through OUSA’s Event Reg (see link above). It can not be done through the Empire State Winter Games website.
Payment can be made online through PayPal or by check (in USD), made payable to Empire Orienteering Club, and mailed to Janet Findlay, 4959 Cascade Road, Lake Placid, NY, 12946.
Participants registering in other ESG events (such as biathlon or cross country) can not claim the multi-event discount through EventReg. They must pay for their ski-o events in full and claim the discount on the other sport’s registration site.
We encourage you to purchase the 2 or 3 race package since single event fees are very high. This is because the ESG organization is charging a fixed fee per athlete regardless of the number of races they enter.
Your registration fee includes day use fees for Cascade and Scott’s Cobble, along with an ESG winter vest. The vests are Karbon brand and sizes are Unisex, Youth S – L and Adult S – 3XL. Your choice of size should be indicated when registering on EventReg, and vests will be available for pick up at the venue (Cascade or Scott’s Cobble) on the day of your first event. If you have pre-registered online please do not go to the ESG Athlete Check-In in Lake Placid to get your vest – it will not be there for you!
If you register on site the day of the event we cannot guarantee that a vest will be available for you. If late registrants contact the meet organizers at least several days before the event we may be able to reserve a vest for you.
Participants are encouraged to take part in other Empire State Games events such as the Opening Ceremonies. Information about other ESG events can be found here.
Should the ski-o event be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions a portion of the pre-paid registration fee will be refundable while the remainder will be deferred until next year’s Empire State Winter Games.
