A Masterful week in Golden

A great week was had by all at the 2012 Nordic Masters Event and Huckleberry Loppet.

Skiers of all ages were out to show their stuff at the Nordic Masters event and Huckleberry Loppet held at the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre between March 12-17. Pictured is three-year-old Kai Sinclair-Hobbs.

Though the weather provided some challenges for race organizers and participants the Nordic Masters Event at the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre was a huge success.

“It really could not have gone better. We had some challenging ski conditions but the team we had in place overcame all our obstacles. The whole community supported this event to such a degree that people are going to go away very impressed with Golden and the level of hospitality they received here,” said Jeff Dolinsky, President of the Golden Nordic Club.

In all over 150 participants came out for the week long event which saw racers  face conditions which went from icy to perfect.

“When  you have 156 volunteers who can co-ordinate an outdoor event with over 30 kms of ski trail in wild snow conditions, it shows the resilience and strength of the community,” Dolinsky said. “It will be a super memory for everyone.”
