For those renewing, we appreciate your past support of the Birchleggings Club. Join or Renew during our current membership drive (ends Jan 31, 2020) and become eligible for fine prizes in our random drawing.

What we do:   The Birchleggings Club Inc. supports the American Birkebeiner in various ways. We recognize and present awards to the 20, 30 and 40 year skiers at our annual Birchlegger Sunday breakfast. The Tony Wise Award, which is given in recognition of significant contribution to the growth and success of the Birkebeiner, is presented annually by the Birchleggings Club. In our most major effort, the club is committed to fund the Birchleggings warming hut at Mosquito Brook on the Birkie trail. Past dues have allowed us to already pay off over 85% of that cost. Most recently, the Birchleggings Club played a significant role in the funding of the Tony Wise Museum of the American Birkebeiner.

What else we do:  To promote participation by youth in skiing and healthy lifestyle activities, the Birchleggings Club now helps to provide Korteloppet entry-fee scholarships for high school skier athletes through the Wisconsin Nordic Network. The club also contributes to the “Nordic Rocks for Schools” program of the Central Cross-Country Ski Association (CXC). This program assists schools in obtaining Nordic ski equipment for their physical education classes.
