Washington Lodging: Sleeping Lady

Sleeping Lady is named for the mountain profile just above Leavenworth. She looks pretty relaxed, and chances are as a guest, you will be, too.

Race Day: Ski to Sea

The 96-mile course breaks down like this—a 4-mile cross-country ski starts the course, followed by a 2.5-mile downhill ski or snowboard. After an 8-mile run, racers complete a 42-mile bike leg. The fifth leg is a two-person, 18.5-mile canoe trip, followed by a 14-mile cyclocross bike leg and finishing with a 5-mile sea kayak journey.
