Classic 21km and Freestyle 7km Results

What an event . A special thanks to the volunteers who stood outside in the cold timing , and course setting. Thank you to the Snow Farm for course setting. The conditions were great with good tracks and over 43  skiers in the three events. It  is good to see the resurgence in the club and all the people happily skiing with families and dogs _ See the results on our new result page . Result Page  

It seems the timers missed a few times so if you took your own let me know and I’ll pop it in. The order is correct. 

Cobweb season opening

Special Thanks to the Snow Farm staff and the enthuesiasm of Ernie, Tim & Nicole and especially the skiers new to cross country who entered in the event. Awesome. While those of you who thought conditions wouldn’t be great, they were the best – new snow during the morning made the classic tracks perfect for Salomom skin skis and other non wax skis. The event was purely fun, rules relaxed to cater for everyone – join us for next event

The chocolate prizes were a perfect reward.

The results – Who can improve over the winter
