From Janet Findlay, course setter —
While most trails at Mt. van Hoevenburg are open at present conditions are marginal, and with another rainstorm moving in on Friday they are likely to deteriorate significantly by Saturday. Therefore we’ve decided with regret to cancel the annual Ho Ho-O scheduled for Saturday, the 29th. We will go ahead and set up a short introductory course for the Try-It using trails covered with artificial snow around the stadium but please note this will be designed for beginners and not experienced racers.
The next ski-o meet at van Hoevenburg is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19 and will be held in conjunction with the monthly Citizens’ Cross Country race; competitors are welcome to enter both and get 2 races for the price of 1. Here’s hoping winter returns by then!
