On March 22-26, 2006 skiers of all abilities from throughout North America will be able to enjoy three days of fantastic ski events in the Oregon Cascades, incredible afternoon options for spring adventures in the Central Oregon high desert, and plenty of social/recreational events for all ages. All of this wrapped up in one of America's great vacation destinations…Bend/Mt Bachelor, Oregon.
For the first time ever, the National Masters has been scheduled for the very end of the North American ski calendar to minimize conflicts with major ski marathons and other regional races. They've also condensed the schedule to minimize time away from work/family. A brand new dimension to the National Masters event will be the concurrent MBSEF Youth XC Festival held at the same Mt Bachelor venue…thus giving parents and grandparents the ability to share the snow with the youngest generations of new skiers.
The AXCS National Masters serves as the U.S. National Championships for citizen skiers 25 and older. Past events have seen over 600 participants from up to 30 states and several different countries. For the eighth consecutive year, the American Cross Country Skiers (AXCS) is proud to be the executive producer and sanctioning body of North America's largest annual XC ski championship event.
