.: Ski XCOttawa.ca :: Skiing in Ottawa and Gatineau Park

By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2012/01/11)

All 14 XC Ottawa athletes made the trip to Whistler, BC to race the Haywood NorAm event at Whistler Olympic Park, site of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The races are also the  selection races for the World Junior/U23 Championships in Erzurm, Turkey Feb 20-26.

The scenery is spectacular, the course is challenging but flows beautifully, and the conditions hard packed and fast!

We have three fun days of racing ahead of us:
Thursday is the skiathlon (15km for the women, 30km for the men)
Saturday is a skate sprint
Sunday is individual start classic (10 km for the women, 15 km for the men).

The sun has been shining brightly for our training, and the forecast is looking great!

Check back for race reports, or you can look for results at zone4.ca
