Washington Nordic Cup
We are proud to be a part of the Washington Nordic Cup (wncup.org), a series of races for young competitors to develop their skiing and racing skills. Athletes from around the region will compete this weekend for points, all building toward the season-ending finale races Feb 29th.
All racers U20 and younger will automatically be entered into the season standings for Washington Nordic Cup. Participants in the Washington Cup should follow the below distance guidelines to be scored:
  U8: 0.5 km
  U10: 1 km
  U12, U14: 2 km
  U16+: 5 km
Any skiers wishing to ski a different distance for their age will receive the minimum points score for that event in the Washington Cup. Skiers under 8 may choose to ski the Lollipop race instead. More information on the Washington Nordic Cup races can be found at wncup.org.
