GMNC Youth Race Series

The 2017/2018 Grand Mesa Nordic Youth Race Series includes three Nordic ski races this season. The youth race series is open to skiers of all abilities and provides opportunities for young skiers to challenge themselves in a fun and supportive environment.

Youth races will include:

  • a non-competitive obstacle course for younger skiers (no prizes are awarded; skiers of all ages are welcome and encouraged to navigate the course)
  • a 2km course for 7 to 13 year old skiers
  • 3-5km courses for 14-17 year old skiers that are not racing as adults in the regular race series

The top three racers in each category and each gender will be recognized at each race and for cumulative points for the entire series.

All races are held on the Grand Mesa at the Skyway Trail System on Colorado Highway 65.
