Almost 250 skiers raced the season finally 20-kilometer freestyle race in the Wasatch citizen series in Park City, Utah on February 26. As it said on the Utah Nordic web site: – It was a perfect day, on perfect snow, with a perfect track. What a way to end the season!!
The race was held on the 6.5-kilometer Farm loop at White Pine Touring Center in Park City. Novice skied one lap; young and old two laps; and hard core older juniors, serious racers and middle-aged â€œnot quite so good looking in lycra anymoreâ€ skiers went three laps.
Sunshine and spring weather made this race â€œa good oneâ€ for the memory book. Here are some photos from the event.
