Tomorrow’s (2/18) race at Gore has been postponed for a week, to Tuesday 2/25. All other information remains the same.
Tuesday evening (yes, Tuesday evening!) brings the 6th week of the Gore Nordic Citizens’ Races, and the 2nd time it’s a series race this season. Start time is 6 PM and distance is a little less than 5k, made up of 4 rolling loops which are shared with both classic and skate skiiers. It’s also possible to stop early but only 4 loop finishers get series points. Arrive at the Gore Nordic Ski Bowl (not Gore Mountain Ski Area!) by 5:30 to get checked in and purchase a $12 trail pass. Many prizes awarded at the raffle afterwards. All the info can be found here.
Looking ahead to next weekend – the 4th oldest race in the series and a favorite for many, the Hoot Toot & Whistle 5k in Readsboro VT, organized by the guy who puts the DION in DION snowshoes. A more detailed reminder including (hopefully) snow conditions will appear later this week.
