Folks, the weather is not working with us. All of our potential sites will not have enough terrain open this weekend to host an event. We will push back to March 19th and try again.
Due to the recent rains and high winds, the local areas will freeze up hard before the weekend. They don’t think they will be able to groom most of their trails by the weekend so we will postpone until the next weekend or the next after that if possible. Pray for snow.
Due to the upcoming weather and Jr. Nationals at Mt. Van Hoevenberg the management will not allow any outside groups to race next weekend. We are considering our options. Stay tuned and remain flexible.
We are looking to hold our championship at the same venue as the nordic events, Mt. Van Hoevenberg/Cascade. Dates are March 4&5. More information to follow.
Sunday’s event will be run as a mass start with a 10am start time. Check in at the timing building across from the main lodge at the cross country center at Mt. Van Hoevenberg..
