Once again the Fernie Nordic Racers were at the Kootenay Cup event in Nipika this last weekend January 30-31. Several of the parents were also participants in the event. This event included long distance categories for adults: 15 and 30 km classic on Saturday, 10 and 20 km skate on Sunday. The course was a little challenging and everyone had a good time competing under cool temperatures but nice weather. The race results should be available soon at Zone4 for Classic and Skate. More photos can be found on this page.

The Nelson Ski Club was hosting the third event of the Teck Kootenay Cup this last Sunday and Fernie was well represented. Coaches Naomi and Jeff had the young racing team ready to go and eager to participate. Several adult competitors from Fernie were also competing. Looking at all the smiles after the event, this was another success. The clubs from Fernie, Rossland and Nelson had the largest groups of skiers at the event. Our club and its Racers are very intent in attending all six events of the Kootenay Cup. Will another club snatch the cup from Fernie this year? There is a challenge in here somewhere! The next stop is Nipika, then Fernie and Rossland. Way to go!
The results of all categories are here at Zone 4.
