Awards will be based on unofficial results so they can be presented as soon as possible following the last race.


Waxing areas will be available in heated garage building at North Bay Nordic. On-site power will be available, however, large teams are encouraged to bring generators, or rent them locally to ensure reliable power supply.

Menís and Womenís change rooms will be available in the clubhouse in addition to outdoor washrooms. There will be a snack bar serving food and drinks on Friday and Saturday. Open, Varsity and Alumnae/I race fees include a lunch meal which will be served to all athletes at Nipissing University following Sundayís events.

Waxing and athlete facilities will be available on Sunday in the main cafeteria at Nipissing University. The cafeteria is located in close proximity to both start and finish areas. Coaches should have skis glide waxed off site or outdoors during Sundayís races to minimize wax shavings in the cafeteria.
