Free VASA race for juniors and @ High School State Meet


Hello Nordic parents & friends!

Your skiers did a fantastic job this week. You should be very proud.

This email is lengthy but provides important information for those wishing to register their skier for upcoming race opportunities. Thank you for taking the time to read on.

NOTE: When we discuss Jr Ski Races & U14 races; skiers will race against skiers IN THEIR SAME AGE GROUP. Your skier will not race against adults or high school age skiers/racers.


Please have your skier pack warm clothing, gloves, hat, and TALL SOCKS. Blisters have been a problem for a few; mainly due to short socks in a tall ankle boot & skin to boot friction.


The next TWO weekends will offer FREE race opportunities for our Jr Ski Program participants. The remainder of this email contains important information regarding racing only.
