FAR WEST FUNDRAISERS
There are only a few races and events that generate all of our income. If you are going to race, please attend or volunteer to help at a fundraiser. The proceeds go to supporting Junior, Senior and Master cross country skiing in the division.
- Season Kickoff Party: Held at Cottonwood Restaurant, social hour, 3 course dinner, and special guest speaker.
- Auction/Raffle Party: THE cross country ski social event of the season. Not only is everyone there but there is good wine and a great raffle and auction. Come see what the auctioneer is wearing THIS year!
- Tahoe Rim Race & Tour: All proceeds from this race go to the Far West Nordic and Auburn Ski Club Junior Skier programs.
- Billy Dutton Uphill: Billy was as athlete extraordinary endurance, equally famous for his great smile as he was for his daily (!) routine of skiing UP the Mountain Run on classic skis. As one of the founders of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue, Billy’s legacy lives on today. This 3.2 mile Uphill race from the base of Squaw to High Camp commemorates Billy’s life and his many contributions to our community. All proceeds from the Billy Dutton Uphill go to benefit Far West Nordic’s juniors program.
