The 2014-2015 edition of Far West Nordic’s NORDIC NEWS is available at your favorite cross country ski area and local XC ski shop in Northern California. It’s chock-full of lots of great information for you about cross country skiing, racing, where to ski, how to train, stay injury-free, and much more. It also contains the Far West Nordic RACE SCHEDULE for 2015, so you can calendar out your schedule easily. Pick one up at your local ski center, or if you want, you can view it online by CLICKING HERE.
The 2014 edition of the Squaw Mountain Run results are online. Auburn Ski Club is the driving force (and main beneficiary) of this event, and over 400 runners and hikers participated this year in perfect weather conditions on a beautiful day. And of course, Far West Nordic was there in force.
Even though it’s a running race, it’s notable that so many of the top finishers are connected to the Nordic world. Men’s winner JP Donovan is currently the XC ski coach for Incline High School, while second place Andrew Cobourn is a former top junior Nordic racer for the division. 8 out of the top 12 men’s finishers have Far West Nordic ties, and 7 out of the top 12 women, including overall winner Anja Gruber (Far West Elite Team).
Congratulations to all the participants. Results are HERE.
