All entries after Jan. 28 must register in person on day of race at the “Late” rate.
Registration and payment for the 2023 OUSA Ski-O Nationals and the 2023 Empire State Games is combined. When you register on EventReg you are automatically entered in both events.
You can not register or pay for ski-o events through the Empire State Games website this year.
Payment can be made online through PayPal, or by check (in USD), made payable to Empire Orienteering Club and mailed to
Registrar, Ski-O Nationals,
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 a 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.
Registration fee includes Day Fees to venues along with an ESG winter jacket.
The jackets are Karbon brand and sizes are unisex, Youth XS-Large and Adult XS-2XL. You can find a Karbon size chart here. Sizes should be indicated when registering on EventReg, and jackets will be available to pre-registrants for pick up at check-in on the day of your first event. If you have pre-registered online please do not go to the ESG athlete check-in at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts to get your jacket – it will not be there for you.
If you register on site the day of the event we cannot guarantee that a jacket will be available for you.
If late registrants contact the meet organizers early in the week before the event we may be able to reserve a jacket for you.
Participants are encouraged to participate in other Empire State Games events such as the Opening Ceremonies. Information about other ESG events can be found here.
If the event is cancelled due to adverse weather conditions all pre-paid registrants will receive a full refund. If a participant is forced to cancel due to personal reasons a partial refund may be considered.
