2012-2013 Race & Event Schedule

GRAND MESA NORDIC COUNCIL 2012-2013 RACE SCHEDULE:

The GMNC has five days of Nordic ski racing fun slated for the 2012-2013 season.  Our race events are on some of the best snow and terrain you can find in the Rocky Mountains. We make the races challenging for the top athletes but also comfortable for the rest of us who just want to get out and test our skills against a fun course. Entry fees are low to encourage participation, and this is just one of the many ways the GMNC raises funds for  regular grooming operations on the Grand Mesa.  As always, events include hot soup and some good giveaways thanks to our sponsors!

The Grand Mesa Nordic Race Series is a series of four cross country ski races with awards for each race as well as for the cumulative point winners for the whole series. The series emphasizes ski racing for fun and personal fitness for skiers of all abilities.

All races will be held on the Skyway Nordic Ski Trails on Colo. Highway 65 on top of Grand Mesa.

Registration for each race will be on race day only in the Skyway parking area beginning at approximately 10 AM. Entry is $10 for Grand Mesa Nordic Council members, $15 for others.

NOTE: Road closures can happen on Grand Mesa and nasty weather may result in postponing a race. Please check the website for late breaking news regarding races before heading up.
