Successful Nordic Ski Cross Tournament at Blow Me Down

Mark Tierney spear-headed a Nordic Cross event last night for Track Attack, upper level Jackrabbits and his adult ski training group. There was a mini “quarter-pipe” turn, a downhill Ski Cross run with bumps, jumps, turns and hoops and a down-hill slalom course that the three groups rotated through. The Ski Cross run was the only one timed. It took place on parts of the A and B trails very near and through the stadium and under the lights. Lively music was blaring throughout. The mood was very upbeat and excited! It was excellent. Other clubs should try this.
