Sunshine Letter | Far West Nordic strides through low snow year

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Far West Nordic strides through low snow year

What a strange winter it was! Despite Mother Nature’s lack of cooperation this past season, we still had wonderful support from members and local retailers. Our coaches led the charge on successful race trips to places such as West Yellowstone, Soldier Hollow (twice), Bear Valley and Junior Nationals at Stowe, where Far West Nordic athletes excelled, bringing back several podium and top 10 finishes.

Our organization would not be where we are today without our members, racers, coaches, sponsors, retailers, board and staff who have a passion for cross country skiing.

We want to thank everyone, and especially our main supporters: Alpenglow, Tom and Louise Burns, Fischer, New Moon, Paco’s, James Rosen, Salomon, Silver Sage Center for Family Medicine, Stifel Nicolaus, Sugar Bowl/Royal Gorge, Summit Medical Group, Swix/Toko, Tahoe Donner Cross Country, Wild Cherries and the Thomas Winn Foundation.
