The Golden Nordic Club is hosting a friendly cross country ski competition

Golden Nordic Club hosts the first race of the season

The Golden Nordic Club is hosting their first event of the 2012/2013 season on Nov. 24 and 25.

The Golden Nordic Club is hosting their first event of the 2012/2013 season on Nov. 24 and 25.

In fact, the Dawn Mountain Challenge / Teck Kootenay Cup 1 & 2 is the first cross country ski race in Western Canada this season.

The two-day event will be a fun race, involving recreational skiers who enjoy a friendly race once in a while, and competitive racers who need a way to shake off the cob webs from the off season.

Saturday will be the classic skiing event with a mass start (15 kilometres for adults and less for younger skiers). And Sunday is the free skate skiing event with individual starts (7.5 km open, or 10 km for adults and less for younger skiers).

The Nordic Club is looking for skiers and volunteers to help make this event a success. The races will be taking place at the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre, and the recreation categories have been expanded this year, so come out and enjoy a great day of early season skiing.

More information and registration is available at the Golden Nordic Club website, www.goldennordicclub.ca.
