West Yellowstone SuperTour Opener

A small contingent represented Far West Nordic at the West Yellowstone SuperTour opener. The 9k freestyle race was moved to the South Plateau Whiskey trail due to the lack of snow on the Rendezvous Ski Trails. The plateau course was a 9k point to point gradual climb starting at about 7260 feetand gaining 300 feet along the way. 
Far West Nordic results: Spencer Eusden 79th, Patrick McElravey 84th, Wyatt Fereday 94th
Beth Taylor 17th (6th FU23), Emily Stitt 32nd, Katrin Larusson 60th, Danielle Nivinski 81st, Elise Hardy 97th 
Former Farm Team racers Chelsea Holmes and Matt Gelso both took 2nd place finishes. Laurel Fiddler, now skiing for Sun Valley, was 1st FJ1 (28th overall).
