The 2012 The Great Ski Race is cancelled due to lack of snow.

For only the second time in 36 years, the Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue (TNSAR) Team is cancelling the race for 2012. “We are an industrious bunch of winter enthusiasts, but even the most optimistic person can’t combat a petulant winter. It’s not just that there there isn’t enough snow…it’s that there isn’t any snow on long portions of the race course.” After considering alternate plans – and when there is this little snow there are very few alternate plans – TNSAR decided to avoid putting on a race this year that would not match the expectations and level of quality that everyone has come to expect.

Suffice to say…we will be back in 2013 and look forward to the largest turnout yet!
